Analytical Perspectives and the Study of Power in the Social Sciences, in English

The aim of this course is to give students a deeper knowledge on a number of central analytical approaches to the study of politics, as well as a deeper knowledge on how politics can be understood - both explicit and implicit - and studied with these analytical approaches as a basis.

The students shall reach a deepened understanding of how various theoretical and empirical studies are more or less characterized, or affected, by the choice of analytical approach. The central analytical approaches are: rational choice, institutionalism, feminism, constructivism and normative theory.
