Teaching

Teaching can play a transformative role in producing discerning global citizens

Every course is built around overarching themes, including "the decline of democracy worldwide?" and  "data in political science inquiry." The aim is to expose students to the main theoretical frameworks and debates in the field, engage with case studies and examples, and improve methodological and analytical competencies. Ultimately, the goal is to provide students with an international experience and perspective, as well as equip them with the tools necessary to contribute to the global community.
