Course Description: 

This course mainly serves students with an interest in political communication and comparative politics; voting behavior and public opinion; empirical democratic theory and comparative political economy; and the methodology of quantitative research. It focuses on how citizens, with their limited resources and time available for engaging with politics, perform their role as ultimate decision-makers in democratic politics. This angle gives us an interesting perspective on the entire democratic political process and allows us to inspect the content and empirical validity of its normative foundations. Hence the course serves as an intermediate-level introduction to the study of political behavior, choice and attitude formation.
