This specialisation gives you the opportunity to study various aspects of the relationship between power and morality. Can political principles, institutions, and practices ever be legitimate?
Central to the programme in Political Theory is the battle between power and morality in a world where peoples, cultures, and money know no bounds: what may we force each other to do? What should we do? Can recognition offer an alternative to redistributive justice and what exactly is recognition?
This Master's specialisation offers students an unprecedented opportunity to learn to assess political values, aspirations and dreams in terms of their desirability and reasonability. You will also discover how political theoretical work can be introduced fruitfully in other relevant contexts. This will enable you to help civil initiatives and governmental institutions, not to mention the public at large by imagining and designing policies and ambitions that are both viable and defensible.

The Master's in Political Theory is a specialisation of the Master's programme in Political Science. For the fifthtime in a row, this programme was rated number one in the Netherlands by the Keuzegids Masters 2017(Guide to Master's programmes).
