Dozierende Clint Claessen (clint.claessen@unibas.ch, BeurteilerIn)
Inhalt What is the importance of party leaders? How do different party families shape their party executive in different countries? In many democracies, party elites play a crucial role in deciding who holds power and how. In this seminar we delve deeper into the nuts and bolts of the intra-party politics and political careers in both Westminster and continental democracies. How do party leaders get selected? How much does their personality and campaign style matter to the party goals of policy, office and votes? The seminar is structured according to the different players and aspects of the party: the party members, candidate selection, party group leadership, party families, potential voters, the party goals, the electoral system and ultimately, the party leaders themselves. The seminar consists of theoretical sessions (+-75%) and applied sessions (+-25%) where we will work in the R environment. The goal is that you learn to work with data on candidate selection and that you write a 3000-word paper comparing party elites, either over time in the same party, between parties or in different countries.
Lernziele At the end of the seminar:
- The students can explain intra-party candidate selection and give at least three examples of selection processes in different parties.
- They can analyze differences between party elites in different party families and under different electoral constraints.
- They understand the competencies of party leaders in comparison from at least two countries.
- They can perform basic statistical operations (OLS/Logit) with candidate selection data in R.
