Government and Politics is a key field of Political Science. It deals with various systems of government and regimes in comparative perspective. In Government and Politics, researchers analyse political institutions, decision-making processes and policies. Further they research interactions between political institutions and processes as well as interactions between political decisions and political actors´ logics of action. The People´s Republic of China´s political and economic system depicts the globally most important alternative draft to market economy based democracies. Hence it is considered a key aspect in the chair´s research and teaching.
► The Chair is a member of Trier University´s Zentrum für Ostasien-Pazifik-Studien (ZOPS).
