Latest from the department


The department’s research in political science and public management is characterized by two specializations: one in European Union politics, with emphasis on the dynamics of its multi-level administrative system, and the other in leadership of public institutions, and their interaction with non-public institutions. The research is conducted in two research groups, both having expertise on selected policies and sectors such as higher education and health care. Both groups contribute to the Department's working papers series with pre-prints of articles, book chapters and reports.  With topics related to digitalization of public sector, both research groups work in close collaboration with CeDIT, Centre for Digital Transformation at UiA.
