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.
