Purpose


 

 

Description

This seminar focuses on empirical research in political science on political behaviour and institutions in the EU, as well as how behaviour and institutions shape EU policy outcomes. The seminar will introduce students to some of the general theoretical ideas and propositions about how to explain political behaviour in the EU (at the national and EU levels), as well as some of the latest empirical research and measurement and estimation techniques in this field of research. Each week, students will be required to read several “classic” papers on a topic as well as several recent empirical papers with advanced research designs, e.g. experimental or quasiexperimental. EVERYONE is expected to read all the papers and be ready to discuss them. The seminar discussion will focus on the key theoretical, empirical, and design choices scholars made in their research, and participants will be expected to be able to carefully explain and dissect the papers. Each week, I will randomly pick on someone to kick of a discussion on a particular paper!
