POLITICAL SCIENCE RESEARCH

At the Department of Political Science, we endeavour to conduct high-quality research that covers the widest possible range of the various political science disciplines.

The department’s research is internationally anchored, and a great deal of resources is dedicated to collaborating with researchers abroad, publishing in international journals and participating in international conferences.   

We also emphasise disseminating our research to the public via international publishing channels, in Danish journals and books, via radio and television features, newspaper or online articles as well as in the form of lectures.

An important element of the department’s broad research profile are the many active and talented PhD students.

Furthermore, it is a key principle at the department that the teaching must be research based. To the greatest extent possible, teaching is carried out by active researchers in order to ensure that it is based on the latest research within the field.
