REGG is a multi- and interdisciplinary platform for researchers who are interested in governance at regional, global as well as national and sub-national levels and who use a diversity of disciplinary, theoretical, and methodological tools and approaches.
The group deals with issues of power, authority, and legitimacy; decision- and policy-making, government, and implementation; responsibility, fairness, and efficiency in a variety of policy areas, such as environmental policy, trade, economic integration, infrastructure, peace and security, human rights, migration, and infrastructure.
Some parts of the research focus on the dynamics of global and regional institutions (such as the United Nations, the World Trade Organization, the World Health Organization, the World Bank, the European Union, and the African Union) while other parts are more focused on the dynamics and effects of different forms of governance in a specific context, usually a world region, a country or a local community, or in certain policy areas, such as migration, natural resource management or human rights.
The research group regularly arranges seminars, conferences and other meetings where members present ongoing research, discuss research applications as well as educational issues.
By its nature, REGG is an extrovert and inclusive group. The research group has members from all subjects and disciplines in the School of Global Studies and includes senior faculty, postdocs, and doctoral students. The group also collaborates with researchers from other departments and universities, for example through joint seminars and conferences, invited speakers, and guest researchers. The group also receives trainees from various teaching programs.
