- Pillar 4 Governance, institutional change and political behaviour
BAGSS faculty comprises over 25 professors from the fields of Sociology, Psychology, Educational Science, Political Science, Economics, Demography and Statistics. More details about topics that will be supervised in our pillars can be found here: www.uni-bamberg.de/bagss-topics
