Reimut Zohlnhöfer’s research and the research of the graduate students and post-docs working at his chair focus on comparative public policy. More precisely, we mainly analyze economic and social policies in advanced democracies. Key explanatory variables in our research include political parties, political institutions and veto players, globalization and Europeanization. In addition, we work conceptually in the field of theories of the policy process. You find a list of current and completed research projects below.
