Semester: 

Winter

Offered: 

2017
Laws are one of the main outputs of politics. In order to understand why some laws come into being, and in which shape, one has to understand the processes of legislative politics. We will analyse the role of parliaments, parliamentary committees, governments, parties as well as other actors such as courts or interest groups in legislative politics. The main focus of this class is an analytical perspective highlighting the strategic interactions involved in legislative decision-making.
