Doel vakThis course has two goals:
1) To deepen the students' knowledge and understanding of Dutch
2) To enhance the students' skills in assessing and executing political
science research, by making them familiar with some important
Both objectives are closely related: students will study Dutch politics
by means of qualitative research and they will learn about qualitative
methods by applying them to issues in Dutch politics.
Inhoud vakConsensus democracy, constitutional monarchy, multicultural society,
unified-yet-decentralized state, bicameral parliament, multiparty
system, proportional electoral system, loyal member of NATO, founding
member of the EU - politically speaking, the Netherlands is a complex
and fascinating case. This course will discuss some essential
characteristics of the Dutch political system and pay attention to
influential current developments, such as the rise of populism,
Europeanization, and 'glocalization'. These topics will be studied by
means of political scientific studies in which various qualitative
methods have been used, such as (comparative) casestudy analysis
(including process tracing), document analysis, (expert) interviewing,
and ethnography (including participative observations). We will discuss
the theoretical background of these methods, but also the practical do’s
en don’ts and pros and cons. Students will learn to understand and
assess existing qualitative research and in the working group sessions
they will practice the use of qualitative research methods themselves.
