The seminar in International Politics (IP)

The paper could be a project plan, an application, or an outline for an article. And sometimes we also discuss published articles and books.

Chair: Carl Dahlström.

In this seminar we discuss research about public administration and public policy. The papers presented are often comparative, either over time or cross-cases. Normally, we have a mix of presenters from the department and guests from other institutions. Usually, we meet once a month during semesters. The seminars are one and a half hour, from 13.15 to 14.15, and we are often in room B340 on Sprängkullsgatan 19.
