Welcome to the Research Group 'Comparative Politics, Interdependence and Globalization' (CPIG)


Comparative Politics, Interdependence and Globalization (CPIG) is a research group based at the University of Kiel in Germany. As a specialized research unit dealing with comparative politics, the research group is an integral part of the study of Political Science at the university. 

Our faculty, fellows and students use state of the art social science methods to investigate scientific problems of national and international concern. The fields of our research currently range from the individual foundations of political preference formation to the global diffusion of public policies.

During term-time, the research group organizes weekly seminars addressed by visiting speakers from around the world.
