The Center for Applied Policy Research (C.A.P.) at LMU Munich was founded in 1995 in order to bring together the privately funded, practice-oriented research work attached to the professorship held by Prof. Werner Weidenfeld. Today, the Center is a famose university policy research institute on European and international questions in Germany.

Prof. Dr. Klaus Goetz,
LMU Munich, Chair of Political Systems and European Integration

One core interest of the Chair is the process of Europeanization of the political system of Germany and the role of Germany within Europe. Another focus relates to integration and migration in the European states as well as the relationship of politics, state and religion in Europe. Finally, neo-institutional perspectives on parliaments are part of the research.

Research Group

The wide range of courses offered at the LMU Munich allow, in addition to specialization modules on political theory and political systems, specialization in International Relations and European Integration. The teaching units at the LMU offer regular seminars, which illuminate the European Union from the different perspectives of the political science disciplines. Especially important and characteristic for the group is the combination of research on both institutional processes and developments in policies like energy or research and development, justice and home affairs, foreign policy or transatlantic relations. Further- more, the members of the Research Group have published extensively in well-rated science journals on questions of European Union politics and released landmark books on European Integration.
