Program Details

“LUISS” or “LUISS Guido Carli”, is an independent, private university in Rome, Italy, founded in 1974. The Department of Political Science of the University offers doctoral program in Politics: History, Theory, Science, which aims to provide participants with the theoretical and empirical wherewithal required for an analytical and rigorous study of politics.

The doctoral program offers three strands which, united by a common thread focus on three specific aspects.

  1. The political theory strand offers a philosophical-political normative perspective centred on the issue of justice, addressed in terms of redistribution and recognition and articulated in a local and global dimension. 
  2. The political science strand connects with the empirical perspective of political science, offering a qualitative and quantitative methodological base, followed by training directed towards some key issues of the discipline.
  3. The political history strand aims at providing students with the most advanced and recent theoretical and methodological tools for the historical study of politics, international relations and the institutions and ideas of the XIX and XX centuries.

The common aim of the doctoral program is to train young scholars with up-to-date, rigorous and in-depth knowledge of the challenges faced by contemporary politics, including in their historical dimension.
