Research One of the main goals of the Institute of Political Science is to produce high-ranking output in both fundamental and applied research. Our research projects involve international collaboration with leading institutions in Europe and North America. They further involve collaboration with non-academic institutions such as public administrations in Switzerland and Germany, international organizations, as well as university consortia. Information about the single projects listed here includes the topic, the type of funding and the main output in terms of publications, data archives, and public events. We make an effort to bring results of our research to the attention of the wider public with articles in newspapers and interviews.
