Mar 12, 2008 18:00
Prof. James Connelly, Funda Pepperell
Ethnic minorities make up about 7 per cent of the population of the Great Britain, but generally their representation in politics and government is lower than this. To what extent ethnic minorities participate in British politics at local and national level, including their turn-out levels and voting patterns as well as the responses of political parties to this process, will be examined in this seminar. The general features of the British political system, drawing on contrasts and comparisons with other political systems, including the Turkish political system will also be discussed along with the parliament, the party system, and the electoral system.
