The sociology of migration is undoubtedly one of the sociological areas that have experienced a noticeable upswing in recent years. In the course Ethnic Inequality Comparative approach, we cover a broad array of topics in migration sociology. We first carry out the sociological examination of the causes of migration and address the question what immigrant selectivity means for their successful integration into host countries. The second part of the course deals with the consequences of migration for immigrants themselves and for their incorporation in new societies. We particularly explore cultural, structural, social and identificational aspects of immigrants integration. In the third part of the course we look into the reactions of the native-born majority population towards newcomers and the general consequences of immigration for the host society. The breadth of the topics covered by the course reflects the heterogeneity of the field, both theoretically, methodologically and empirically. The overarching aim of the lecture is to provide expertise in the field of migration sociology, paying attention not only to the description of main developments but also to the theoretical understanding and critical assessment of the sophisticated empirical evidence.

This lecture introduces students to theories and methods for explaining how autocratic political systems emerge, how they consolidate and how they fail. Next to a discussion of how to define and measure ‘autocracies’, we will focus on the questions of how autocratic leaders deal with the dual problem of power-sharing among autocratic elites and controlling the mass public. We will also spend time on the role of institutions and public support in autocracies, how censorship and propaganda work and the prospects of protest mobilization. Next to substantive discussion the lecture will put great emphasis on the practice of quantitative political research.

Statistical skills are essential for students of any empirically oriented social science. In the study of political science an understanding of statistical data analysis is necessary not only for conducting analysis, but also for understanding a significant proportion of the empirical political science literature. This course is an introduction to data analysis in empirical political research. We will introduce the basic methods of data analysis using the statistical software package Stata. The course aims to provide students with an appreciation of what good statistical analysis can achieve, how to use statistical methods appropriately and with confidence and how to interpret the results produced by those methods clearly and correctly.

Description:
This course is designed to introduce beginning students to the central topics and terms in current (English) linguistics. We will discuss the sound system of English, how words are formed and modified in English and how words are combined to form sentences. Or in technical terms: We will cover phonetics, phonology, morphology, semantics, syntax, major (syntactic) contrasts between English and German and occasionally glimpse at the historical development of English. We will also have some brief looks at how these topics are relevant in language acquisition, language storage and processing in the human brain, and language variation over time and in society.

Note that this class will be taught as a flipped classroom, which means that you prepare sessions individually by reading the textbook chapter and watching video clips online BEFORE the sessions. In class your questions will be answered and problem cases solved. You will learn more about this in the first session.

Description:
During this course students will learn the basic skills and methodologies necessary for the study of literature, especially with regard to anglophone letters and cultures. Students will learn how to analyze poetry, prose, and drama by studying major works of British and American literature from the sixteenth to the twenty-first centuries. The focus will be on the technical as well as cultural aspects of works of literature and their historical contexts. 

The course will start by answering the question what literature and the study of literature actually are and then provide an introduction to the three main genres of literature written in English (prose, drama, and poetry). In discussing these genres, we will take a closer look at key theoretical concepts and tools for the analysis of literary texts. Besides, we will also identify important periods in the history of British and American literature.

The lecture will be accompanied by mandatory tutorials for which you have to sign up separately. Please note that the tutorials are attached to specific lectures and are not interchangeable. While both lectures will cover the same content, the scheduling might differ slightly between sessions and it is therefore advisable to attend a tutorial with the tutors who are also attending the lecture in question.

Description:
One of the most significant developments both in international law and international relations throughout the last two decades has been the (re-)emergence of an international legal order based on a robust interpretation of the concept of international criminal justice. By establishing both international and hybrid criminal courts addressing international core crimes such as genocide, crimes against humanity and war crimes, the international community has demonstrated an ever more growing commitment to end impunity for the most heinous crimes affecting mankind as a whole and to hold those bearing individual criminal responsibility personally accountable.

This course aims at providing students with a fundamental understanding of this increasingly important realm of public international law. Thus, in a first approach, an overview both of international criminal law’s theoretical foundation as well as its historical sources will be provided. Adjacently, focus will be given to the ad-hoc tribunals of the 1990s (such as the International Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia) and most prominently to the International Criminal Court (ICC) as the first permanent international organization addressing matters of international criminal justice.

Complementary to this institutional approach, the second part of the course will address material law aspects: Besides the abovementioned crimes as stipulated in the Rome Statute forming the International Criminal Court, attention will be given to further international crimes such as piracy or terrorism. Additionally, questions such as immunity from prosecution for heads of state or government, modes of liability, interdependencies between the national and international judicial sphere and notions of state sovereignty will be addressed throughout the course.

International Humanitarian Law (IHL) is a body of rules that seeks to limit the effects of armed conflict. IHL protects those who are not participating in hostilities, and those who are no longer participating in hostilities. This body of law imposes limits on the methods and means of warfare. IHL forms part of public international law and is largely based on treaties and rules of customary international law. 
In this course the development as well as the basic concepts of IHL will be explored. Students will be introduced to the most important documents governing armed conflict, learn how to apply these and will consider the challenges posed to the application of IHL in armed conflicts. A large part of the course will focus on the new developments in IHL including the emergence of new forms of armed conflicts and the development and use of new technologies in armed conflict.

Assessment
Assessment for this course will consist of one writing assignment and one open book exam.

Lecture type:
Lecture
ECTS:
8.0
Course suitable for:
Bachelor, Master
Language of instruction:
English
Attendance:
On-campus and online, live
Registration procedure:

The course provides a general introduction to German Constitutional Law i.e. the constitution, its background and contents and methods to work with constitutional legal texts.
The German Grundgesetz (Basic Law) which up to this day forms the formal constitutional document of the Federal Republic of Germany has its roots in the allied occupation of Western Germany after World War II. It has proven to be a reliable foundation for the development of the German democratic system and the federal state. The provision of fundamental rights (Art. 1 – 19) puts the Grundgesetz in the tradition of European and North American human rights thinking. It has had an enormous impact on all German law.
Although experiencing some changes throughout the years – especially during the process of the German reunification – the general structure and main provisions of the Grundgesetz remained unchanged.
The course will cover the structure of the German Grundgesetz and its most important provisions while putting a particular focus on the first chapter containing the fundamental rights provisions. Additionally, students will learn about constitutional law in general, the federal structure and the fundamental constitutional principles of the Federal Republic and its integration in the European Union legal system as well as understand the function of the constitutional organs and the legislative process.

Contents:
•    The German legal system
•    Constitutional Law
•    The Grundgesetz and the European Union
•    Fundamental Rights
•    Fundamental Constitutional Principles
•    The Federal State
•    Constitutional organs
•    Legislative procedure
•    Public administration
•    The judicial system

Learning Target:
Students will be able to understand the basic principles and most important provisions of the Grundgesetz and solve simple cases regarding fundamental rights. They will be familiar with the structure of the federal state and its function as well as its most important constitutional, administrative and judicial organs. Students can assess by way of comparison similarities and dissimilarities in other legal systems.

Literature:
No specific textbook is required. Additional reading recommendations will be given in the lecture.

Examination:
Oral Exam.

In this course the development as well as the basic concepts of IHL will be explored. Students will be introduced to the most important documents governing armed conflict, learn how to apply these and will consider the challenges posed to the application of IHL in armed conflicts. A large part of the course will focus on the new developments in IHL including the emergence of new forms of armed conflicts and the development and use of new technologies in armed conflict.

Assessment
Assessment for this course will consist of one writing assignment and one open book exam.

Introduction to German Constitutional Law (Lecture)
EN
Lecture type:
Lecture
ECTS:
8.0
Course suitable for:
Bachelor, Master
Language of instruction:
English
Attendance:
On-campus and online, live
Registration procedure:

The course provides a general introduction to German Constitutional Law i.e. the constitution, its background and contents and methods to work with constitutional legal texts.
The German Grundgesetz (Basic Law) which up to this day forms the formal constitutional document of the Federal Republic of Germany has its roots in the allied occupation of Western Germany after World War II. It has proven to be a reliable foundation for the development of the German democratic system and the federal state. The provision of fundamental rights (Art. 1 – 19) puts the Grundgesetz in the tradition of European and North American human rights thinking. It has had an enormous impact on all German law.
Although experiencing some changes throughout the years – especially during the process of the German reunification – the general structure and main provisions of the Grundgesetz remained unchanged.
The course will cover the structure of the German Grundgesetz and its most important provisions while putting a particular focus on the first chapter containing the fundamental rights provisions. Additionally, students will learn about constitutional law in general, the federal structure and the fundamental constitutional principles of the Federal Republic and its integration in the European Union legal system as well as understand the function of the constitutional organs and the legislative process.

Contents:
•    The German legal system
•    Constitutional Law
•    The Grundgesetz and the European Union
•    Fundamental Rights
•    Fundamental Constitutional Principles
•    The Federal State
•    Constitutional organs
•    Legislative procedure
•    Public administration
•    The judicial system

Learning Target:
Students will be able to understand the basic principles and most important provisions of the Grundgesetz and solve simple cases regarding fundamental rights. They will be familiar with the structure of the federal state and its function as well as its most important constitutional, administrative and judicial organs. Students can assess by way of comparison similarities and dissimilarities in other legal systems.

Literature:
No specific textbook is required. Additional reading recommendations will be given in the lecture.

Examination:
Oral Exam.
