The Department of International Politics at the Institute of Political Science at the University of Vienna conducts empirical and theoretical research, in particular on the governance and crisis of liberal globalization, international environmental and resource policy, socio-ecological transformation processes and imperial lifestyles. The regional focus is currently on Europe and Latin America, with a focus on state and international politics as well as social movements or trade unions. Methodologically, many studies are based on historical materialist policy analysis (HMPA).
