7.5 ECTS credits
The course starts out from a concept of politics related to the various functions of political institutions in different forms of governance. There is a focus on the constitutional structure of institutions and related processes at the local, regional, and national levels, primarily in Sweden but also in comparison to other countries. Fundamental political science concepts are introduced, discussed, and compared to promote understanding of the significance, function, and structure of political institutions in different political systems, where means of governance and control, the institutions of state agencies, and political parties are highlighted as central components. The methodological course elements include elementary practice in political analysis, for example policy analysis and comparative analysis.
