Our research

Our research profile is focused on how the processes, structures and actors within the political administrative system are related to the function, effectiveness, efficiency, legitimacy, output and outcome of the policy process.

We specialize in a range of policy approaches, including public policy, policy transfer, policy planning issues and discourses of policymaking. We also specialize in how public sector organizations manage to achieve their goals. A further important focus of our work is evaluation and accounting in public organizations.
