Politiikan tutkimuksen kandidaattiohjelma [I Periodi]

Vieraalla kielellä annettava opetus [I Periodi]

This course involves a conceptual and theoretical exploration of multilateralism and global governance which are key orientating literatures within the field of international organization.  Multilateralism has been understood as an institutional form, a particular type of diplomatic process and as a particular sub-type of negotiation theory, among others.  Global governance focuses on the authoritative rules, norms, institutions and practices of the international community as it manages its common affairs in the absence of global government. The course involves deep consideration of both concepts and how they have evolved, probing for areas of overlapping concern and distinctive approaches.  In individual research projects and presentations, students use the concepts and theories of multilateralism and global governance to assess a specific policy domain.

Compulsory preceding studies: POLPOP01 Introduction to International Relations

This course reviews recent developments in the use and understanding of violence within contemporary understandings of what security is and how it comes about. It introduces the debates around different understandings of security through the Copenhagen, Paris and Welch ‘schools’ and reviews how the theories of securitization, security bureaucracy and emancipatory security has developed. We also look at more recent research programmes on risk, security technologies, feminist security studies, new materialism in international security, and aesthetic approaches to international relations and security.

Throughout we ask how theories understand contemporary developments in violence and war, with a new case being in focus at each class. We analyze cases from recent conflicts such as the Syrian civil war, the war in Ukraine, international terrorism.

Students are expected to participate actively in analyzing cases and in presenting a theoretical framework of their own choice.

Global Health and Development (GHD)-ohjelman järjestämä kurssi, jonka toteuttavat julkisoikeus ja politiikan tutkimus.

Voting is the cornerstone of American political life. As such, the act of voting has attracted

considerable attention from scholars and policymakers. This course addresses the field of voting

behavior in the United States in roughly four parts. First, we'll discuss general questions in the field and

introduce the major sociological, psychological, and rational choice interpretations of voting. Second,

we'll look at common heuristics used to simplify the vote decision and ways in which campaigns

mobilize voters. In the latter part of the semester we will turn our attention toward voting in

congressional and presidential contexts. The last portion of the course addresses special electoral

conditions: local elections, direct democracy, and the effects of certain electoral reforms.

September 9: Representation and Turnout in the United States

On June 23 2016 the British were asked to respond to a simple referendum question which read: Should the United Kingdom remain a member of the European Union or leave the European Union? Until the murder of the Labour MP Jo Cox on the street in her Batley constituency a week before the vote, the campaign was lively and hard-hitting. The ‘Britain Stronger in Europe’ campaign focused on the damaging economic consequences of a Brexit whilst the ‘Vote Leave’ campaign concentrated on the immigration question, adding that “instead of subsidising French farmers, we should take control back and spend our money (never the euro!) on our priorities like the National Health Service”. Sophie from Peterborough had other things on her mind: “If we leave the EU does it mean we would be banned from the Eurovision Song Contest?” The course will represent a detailed portrait of a decision from the origins of the referendum to the campaign, an in-depth analysis of the result and a discussion of its likely consequences

Compulsory preceding studies: POLPOP02 Introduction to Political Science

Contemporary forms of representative democracy have been facing transitional challenges, which have prompted the rise of ‘democratic innovations’ discourse over the last decades. Participatory and deliberative democracy have challenged the elitist model of representative democracy based on the formalistic concept of electoral representation. A variety of democratic experiments from participatory budgeting programmes, deliberative polling, consensus conference, citizens’ assembly, to ‘crowdsourced’ legislation have been tried worldwide to expand unconventional forms of citizen participation. These experiments have also facilitated new approaches in democratic theory towards the concept of political representation itself. This course addresses the frontier issues of contemporary democratic theories and practices. Students examine various forms of democratic innovations and their real-life effects, discuss different theoretical perspectives, and reflect on their extensive implications for the future of representative democracy.

Periods: II
Language of instruction: English

This course provides an introduction and overview over the disciplines of political and critical discourse analysis. The course will focus on various approaches to political discourse analysis as a tool for analyzing power relations. There is no set single approach, as the field is quite porous. The related works of scholars will be made available for the students for reading, analysis, and reflection during the course.  After the course, the students are expected to better understand the various approaches to political discourse analysis and are better equipped to utilize these theories in their forthcoming work. The students will be more adept at spotting discursive practices in political speech and the media and evaluate possible underlying modes of discursive argumentation.  The course consists of two modules: lecture and seminar teaching in period II, and a practical analytic workshop in period III. Period II course is A42/S25/S33 for 5 ECTS, and period III is S25/S33 for 5 ECTS. Space permitting, however, intermediate level students can also attend the work shop. In addition, if you have previously attended the course for Intermediate studies (A42 5 ECTS), you can still attend the workshop for 5 ECTS for Advanced studies (S25/S33). Priority is given to students registering for both periods.  The language of the course is English, so students are expected to be reasonably proficient in reading and writing academic texts in this language.

Compulsory preceding course: POLPOP02 Introduction to Political Science (exchange students: equivalent studies at home university).

Politics seems more and more concerned with the public and private lives and the ideas of politicians in leadership positions. Blair gave us Blairism, Reagan Reaganomics; Ed Miliband’s face did not fit; ‘alpha male’ Donald Trump groped women ‘like an octopus’; Bill Clinton lived a colourful extra-marital existence; the former French president François Mitterrand had a mistress throughout his period in office; and then there was Berlusconi! The media spotlight on leading politicians has appeared to elevate them above their party as well as exposing them to ruthless scrutiny regarding their capacity to lead. 

Lecture/seminar themes

1. The Presidentialisation of Politics

Have leaders become more prominent and powerful at the expense of parties, policies and parliamentarians?

2. The Mediatisation of Politics

Do the media effectively determine the outcome of elections?

Voting Advice Applications; Candidate videos; web television

3. Presidentialisation at the Grassroots?

Are election campaigns in the constituencies becoming more candidate-centred?

Electoral system and party incentives to ‘individualise’ campaigns

‘Decentralised personalisation’

4. Online personalisation

Do (and how do) candidates seek a cyber-space ‘relationship’ with voters – intimacy at distance?

E-campaigning, online candidate biographies, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram

Lecture Schedule

January 17 Personalisation: Exploring a multi-dimensional concept

January 19 The structural factors underpinning personalisation

January 24 ‘Centralised personalisation’: the ‘Presidentialisation of Politics’ thesis

January 26 The ‘personal party’: Glistrup, Lange, Wilders and Berlusconi

January 31 The mediatisation of politics: From Talk Shows to VAAs

February 2 ‘Decentralised personalisation’: the ‘Individualisation’ of candidate campaigns

February 7 Online personalisation

Concepts structure the way we see and make sense of the world. They live and change in time, providing answers to problems which trouble people in each social and political era. In this course we take a close look into a group of concepts customarily used in the fields of political science and social movement studies to make sense of the world of democracy and citizenship but which have of late been questioned by a growing body of literature. In the face of late-modern socio-political and technological changes like individualisation, political polarisation, social-mediatisation, and the rise of self-initiated pop up-style of activism, many traditional concepts and theories related to representative politics, citizenship, and social movements have become outdated. This course engages in critical and innovative rethinking of such concepts based on and contributing to the lecturers' new book project 'Concepts in Movement'.

Upon completing the course, the student will be familiar with the central concepts used to describe and explain the relationship between citizens and democracy, and is able to critically evaluate today's political trends and developments along with the arising forms of civic participation and activism.
