Germany's Political and Social System in Comparative Perspective
Wednesdays 8-10, Campus Philosophikum II, Room E106
(proseminar in Englisch for students of: BA Social Sciences, Political Science minor subject, International Exchange programmes)

This seminar provides an introduction to the political and social system of the Federal Republic of Germany. It addresses both JLU's first-semester BA Social Sciences and Political Science minor subject (Nebenfach) students as well as international students (e.g. ERASMUS+ or other exchange programmes) who wish to learn more about politics and society in Germany. Together, we want to enable a reflective, comparative perspective on the political and social system of the Federal Republic of Germany.

TOPICS
The weekly seminar sessions usually cover the fundamental rights of the German constitution, the main political institutions and parties, the German welfare regime and the family conceptions underpinning it, the market economy model predominant in Germany as well as trending topics such as growing inequalities, migration, climate crisis and rising right-wing populism. Whenever possible, day-to-day politics serve to illustrate the theoretical arguments and models.

REQUIREMENTS (Studienleistung)
All participants of the seminar are expected to actively participate in the discussions and to read short introductory texts before each and every seminar session. (All mandatory readings as well as the slides used in the sessions will be provided via Stud.IP.) In addition, all participants need to submit a scientific Seminar Report by the end of the semester (31 March 2023).

ASSESSMENT (Prüfungsleistung)
International students and Political Science minor subject (Nebenfach) students are assessed on the basis of the Seminar Report (see above), while BA Social Sciences students take an end-of-module exam (Modulabschlussprüfung) in the form of a written exam in the corresponding lecture delivered by Prof. Dr. Dorothée de Nève.

International students more than welcome!
If you have any questions on this seminar, please contact Niklas.Ferch@sowi.uni-giessen.de.
