Lehrstuhl für Ökonomische Politikanalyse, Universität Münster

The conference addresses the origin and prospects of democracy and dictatorship, policy control and governance structures in comparative political systems and transition processes from dictatorship to democracy and vice versa. We will have up to 36 papers presented in three parallel sessions, in addition to four keynote lectures. Bringing together scholars that are interested in interdisciplinary work comparing political systems is our focus.

We welcome theoretical as well as empirical papers by both economists and other social scientists with an interdisciplinary background. In particular, papers may cover topics such as:

  • Institutional change and prosperity
  • Constitutional history of democracy
  • Political accountability in autocracies
  • Violence and political stability
  • Political economy of revolutions
  • Culture, religion, and political institutions

Keynote speakers:
