June 28, 2021
The Summer University Program introduces students to the analysis of party systems, party competition and voting behavior through the recent theories, empirical results and interactive data analysis workshops. The course is divided into online lessons, individual study and preliminary study. Students also attend lessons with representatives of government and industry sharing their first-hand experiences.

At the end of the course, students will:
Understand party systems’ fundamental theories, competition between parties and voting behavior
Understand the evolution of party politics in a comparative perspective and the disruptive challenges of contemporary politics in recent years
Know how to read and comment on election data
The course syllabus indicates the materials (readings, papers, texts, videos) that students must study in the weeks preceding the course. This preliminary study gives students the necessary information for an intensive course and the ability to begin their weekly individual study with a greater depth.
