Research and Publications The excellence of an academic institution is revealed by the quality of scientific research and publication outlets. Seeking the highest quality in research, we measure ourselves against international standards. Members of the Department of Political Science run numerous research projects and successfully secure funding from national and international funding institutions such as the Swiss National Science Foundation, the National Centre for Competence in Research, the Framework Programme of the EU, and the German Research Community. Research involves wide ranging academic collaboration in Switzerland, Europe and North America, as well as research collaboration with international organisations, the European Union and national state agencies in Switzerland, Germany and the US. On Alexandria, you can find a list of recent publications by individual members of our department. An extensive list can be found on the personal webpages.
