The specialization in Political Theory is designed for students with a special interest in the theoretical, normative, and philosophical aspects of politics. The core subject is part of the MSc program offered by the department, and encourages and trains students to theorize and analyze normative issues in close dialogue with the political realities of disagreement, conflict, and power.
Suveræn is a student-driven organization with a focus on promoting the study of political theory. To do this, the organization works closely together with the Political Theory-group. Suveræn hosts a number of events such as talks by invited scholars on topics as e.g. climate justice and inequality, and debates with politicians and scholars on topics as e.g. populism.
