In our department, we conduct research and deliver education and services about and for government and the public sector. Our research focuses on governmental policy-making and the organisation and management of public and non-profit organisations, on different levels (local, national, international), and in different domains (e.g. welfare and well-being, security, integration, climate and energy). Important research topics include e-governance, public finance, civil society, intergovernmental relations and networks, co-production and participation, and organisation and policy of the EU.
