The Department of Law and Political Science (LAPS) welcomes faculty members and students who are committed to juridical, political, historical, economic and sociological matters.
Our mission is to foster interdisciplinary research, critical analysis and an understanding of political life in an increasingly globalized world.
The Departments aims at covering important topics including legislative systems, legitimacy and social inclusion, parties and elections, security and immigration, law, or political theory, providing students the opportunity for in-depth study of the circulation, dynamics, and legitimization of political power.
