The Chair of Comparative Government represents the field of comparative politics. Theoretical, empirical and methodological aspects of the comparison of regimes and governmental systems in a historical context are dealt with.

One focus is on empirical democracy research, with a special focus on the world region (area) of Latin America.

Another focus of teaching and research is the analysis of the political system of the Federal Republic of Germany, in particular the political development of the state of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, using comparative categories.
