Research Unit Comparative Public Policy

Comparative Public Policy is rooted in various social science theories and focused on the empirical analysis of policies. How can policies and processes of policy-making be analytically described and explained? In Tübingen we focus in particular on the analysis of economic and social policies in affluent democracies. We analyse and compare policies across nations, but also have a strong focus on policies of the European Union.
