With more than 50 staff members, the Institute of Public Law and Political Science (IORP) is the largest department of the faculty. Our size reflects the diverse interests in teaching and research that are pursued by the department's members.
While focusing on Austrian Constitutional Law and Administrative Law, we specifically include European Law and introduce a comparative perspective. We pay special attention to the nexus of law and related disciplines, such as Political Science and Administrative Studies. In all these areas the Institute contributes intensely to the university's special focus on South-East Europe.
