    Course description

    The STV9411 - An Organizational Approach to Public Governance course aims at giving an overview of some organization theory approaches and their application in empirical research. One key focus is on explaining organizational and institutional change. Another is on the effects of organizational and institutional change. How do organizations’ structure, institutionalization, demography and locus affect actual decision-making behaviour and governance processes? What are the design implications? Empirical examples are mainly drawn from the executive branch of government at the supranational, national and subnational level.  

    The course is open to doctoral students in political science and related disciplines.
