Short profile

Silvia von Steinsdorff holds the Chair of Comparative Political Science and the Political Systems of Eastern Europe since 2009. Since 2009 she is also Academic Director of the International Masters Programs and since 2015 Director of the Berlin Graduate School of Social Science.

Her main research interests are - among others - in the intersection of law and politics (in particular, constitutional courts and constitutional politics), organization and impact of parliament and party systems as well as questions of democratization and transformation (in particular Eastern Europe and Turkey). Accordingly, she teaches - next to the introductory courses in German Politics - courses on law and politics, comparative analysis of political institutions, as well as on research design and qualitative methods.
