Comparativism From Legal and Sociological Perspectives
This seminar introduces Comparativism with two speakers (Professor Dagmar Schiek and Professor Susanne Karstedt) who are experienced researchers in comparative studies from different disciplines.
Any project in European studies will only be credible if it leaves a purely national perspective on the EU and its law and policy. If research in this field is to leave the ivory tower of the purely doctrinal or the purely jurisprudential, comparative perspectives are a precondition.
As legal and sociological perspectives converge or complement each other in socio-legal work, comparative projects can be achieved from different perspectives. This seminar introduces Comparativism with two speakers who are experienced researchers in comparative studies, with their roots in different fields: Professor Dagmar Schiek is an expert on comparative law from EU perspectives and Professor Susanne Karstedt focuses on cross-national and cross-cultural studies in criminology and criminal justice.
The speakers will present strategies and methodologies of Comparativism and will give an introduction into different methods of data collection and analysis in comparative research based on examples from their own research.
