Welcome to the website of Prof. Dr. Marius R. Busemeyer!

Welcome to our website! Our main focus is on the international comparison of education systems. Hence, our interests lie within the field of comparative politics, political economy, welfare state research and party politics. Both our research and teaching fall within these fields.

On the following pages you find information on the chair's team, our research, the different research projects, and courses taught at our chair.


Dr. Julian Garritzmann and Erik Neimanns will present first results of the INVEduc research project at the workshop "Welfare State Reform, Public Opinion and the Media" at the Lund University, Sweden.

Janis Vossiek has sucessfully defended his dissertation "Collective Skill Formation in Liberal Market Economies? The Politics of Training Reforms in the United Kingdom, Ireland and Australia" and completed his PhD-Studies with the second highest grade magna cum laude.

We welcome Yvonne Ayvar and Susanne Haastert at the Chair of Political Science, especially Policy Analysis and Political Theory. Yvonne Ayvar works as the new secretary and Susanne Haastert is doctoral researcher at the chair.

Our secretary of many years, Margot Beier, has left university and retired. Aurélien Abrassart, former post-doctoral researcher at the chair, started to work at a research institute in Bern, Switzerland. We wish them all the best for their future!
