Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin - Comparative Political Behavior

Summer School 2017 Berlin

SGoP Summer School on Parliaments

at the Humboldt-University Berlin, 16 - 25 August 2017

 

Together with the Standing Group on Parliaments (Prof. Thomas Saalfeld und Dr. Tom Louwerse) we are organizing the Standing Group on Parliaments Summer School 2017.

 

The aim of the Summer School on Parliaments is to provide a mechanism for young scholars of national, regional and/or trans-national parliaments to enhance their theoretical and analytical toolkit as well as receive feedback from leading academics on their particular research agenda. The 2017 School builds on the success of the 2010 (Bamberg), 2012 (Lisbon)  and 2014 (Brussels) summer schools.

 

The summer school takes place over two approximately two weeks. The programme is built around a series of guest instructors who are leading scholars of comparative legislative studies. Thus, a different instructor will lead the discussion of a different topic each day. We plan a series of eight key themes (one for each teaching day of the Summer school), each lead by a scholar writing and researching in that area. As such, the focus is rarely on one legislature but on topics that are typically core to understanding any legislature.
