We offer a research-based educational program. Thanks to this we wish to contribute to lifelong learning and professional up-dating. Our target audience are regular students and government officials as well as political actors. Through our public service we want to transfer knowledge and insight to administrative and policy practice.
The Public Governance Institute conducts research into different aspects of public governance from a public administration and political science perspective. The results of our research are of value in higher and continuing education, in public organizations, and for society in general.
Our mission is to gain knowledge and insight regarding politics, administration and public policies on local, regional, federal, European and international levels. Such knowledge and understanding is in line with the core tasks of the university. We intend to make scientific contributions to an improvement in the policy-making, organization and management of public administrations. In this process, special attention is given to the role of citizens, political parties and government officials.
