Tina Freyburg will hold her inaugural lecture as Professor at the University St. Gallen on May 17, 2016. The lecture “Internationalization of Politics and Preferences of the Citizens” asks how citizens really perceive the internationalization of politics. Tina Freyburg examines this issue by carrying out an experiment which is part of a largescale survey with 4.000 participants from Germany, France, Great Britain, and Switzerland. She particularly analyses how the evaluation of international cooperation in terms of specific global challenges (refugee crisis, climate change, financial crisis) depends on individual understandings of democracy and the degree of control that a state retains over political decision making.
