Forskningsgruppen Komparativ politik

Forskningsgruppen Komporativ politik (Comparative Politics Research Group) täcker alla större forskningsområden inom området, inklusive institutioner, demokrati och politisk utveckling, partier och röstbeteende, politisk ekonomi, politisk psykologi, allmän opinion och allmän politik.

Vi är specialiserade på politik i OECD-länder, men många av oss forskar också om Östeuropa, Latinamerika och andra regioner. Under senare år har vi utvecklat starka forskningsmiljöer om studier av partier och partisystem, polarisering och radikalisering samt historisk politisk ekonomi.
