Today our second year students begin to study the politics module.
Within the politics module, students learn to identify and apply various approaches to the study of Soviet-type systems and transformation processes. They get an overview of the main challenges facing the newly established political systems. Moreover, they become familiar with information sources on East European politics.
Topics treated are the main features and legacies of Soviet-type systems, different ways of regime change, political regimes in Eastern Europe, the impact of international factors and globalizing contexts as well as Eastern Europe as a region and the role of area studies.
