Welcome to the homepage of the textbook Foundations of European Politics – A comparative approach!

The book introduces students to the most current theoretical and empirical research on European politics, and it does so in a highly accessible way through examples and data visualizations. We hope that the book offers students an engaging learning experience.

This website is part of that engaging experience. Here, for each chapter, we present and describe in greater depth a major political dataset that has been discussed in the book. To explore concepts from the chapters, we present a series of questions that students can answer using data, and we present interactive activities that allow students to engage directly with data to answer these questions.

We hope you enjoy these activities!

You may order the book on the Oxford University Press website.
