Unique history and profile

Bringing Politics & Technology Together

Politics, democracy and political science are facing major challenges: As a result of rapid developments, technological issues now play a significant, often the decisive, role in almost all fields of politics.

Anchored in a unique founding history of strengthening democratic education in post-war Germany, the Munich School of Politics and Public Policy has been an independent institution at the Technical University of Munich since 2014.

The associated integration of technical and natural sciences into political science and political dialogue has produced an internationally unique educational offering.

Numerous specialized professorships devote their research, teaching and knowledge transfer to current political issues, complex international interdependencies and the social opportunities and challenges in dealing with future technologies.
