Join us for a talk by Marius Busemeyer, Professor of Political Science at the University of Konstanz. His research focuses on comparative political economy, welfare states, public spending, social democratic parties and theories of institutional change. In 2010, the University of Cologne granted him the “venia legendi” (Habilitation) in Political Science. In the same year, Busemeyer received a grant from the German National Science Foundation (DFG) (Emmy-Noether Program) to support the establishment of a junior research group on the topic of “The Politics of Education and Training Reform in Western Welfare States”.
