This is why you should choose politics!
A guide to understand poweragt i faget politik
Where there's people, there's power. In all communities there's interests, power and strategic communication. We are going to study political speeches and the many faces of power, and we will become good at spotting ‘the political’ and better at defining, formulating and pursuing our own political interests.
Climate crisis and democracy
We take on the big political challenges like climachange, growing economic inequality, digital surveillance and the challenges of our liberal democracy. What should be done, who has interests in the status quo, who got the power and who wins the battle to define the problem, and what can we do ourself?
Along the way, we examine where our own political views come from, immerse ourselves in our common political culture and get a handle on where the parties come from, what they stand for - to help the next election - and how the Danish political system works.
The teaching is exploratory, analytical and debating and with presentations from both teacher and students. Each week, students take turns delivering current news history and political proposals for political discussion.
Visits from politicians and inspiring opinion leaders!
In the spring of 2022 Marlene Wind, who is professor of political science and head of the Center for European Policy at the Department of Political Science at the University of Copenhagen, visited us and also the political commentator Jens Ringberg.
