- The seminar aims on gaining information and knowledge about discrimination and its possible appearance in the public sector. The focus is set on two questions:
- Does discrimination in supply of public services exist? Which kinds of discrimination are possible and expected?
- Is it possible to identify factors influencing discrimination?
- Written elaboration and presentations (SoSe)
- final report (WiSe)
The main part of performance consists of team work.
As accompanying methodological course, the module “Methods II: Topics in Empirical Research Methods” (Prof. Abraham) is highly recommended.
