Course: Political Institutions in Europe Leuphana University of Lüneburg (Bachelor, in English) Summer Semester 2018 The seminar is meant to provide a comparative overview of the institutional settings and dynamics of party government in European countries as well as at the EU level. The seminar focuses on how citizens’ preferences are articulated and translated into demands to the decision-makers; on the functioning of the main representative and governing institutions that deal with these demands; on the judiciary system; and, finally, on the relationships between institutions across levels of government. Basic questions to be addressed are: (1) Which are the main social divides and how do institutions cope with conflict?; (2) Which are the main rules of the game used to make the chain of democratic delegation work?; (3) Is the power concentrated or dispersed between institutions?; (4) How representative and relate each other?
