Our interdisciplinary research program is rooted in management research and has interfaces with administrative sciences, political science, psychology and sociology. It links scientific rigor with practical relevance. Its intellectual roots are anchored in the behavioral approaches of social sciences, without giving priority to any single theoretical or paradigmatic positions.
We place emphasis on substantiating our research with empirical findings in the politico-administrative system. We find comparative research methodologies particularly helpful in understanding the differences and similarities between public and private management.
