Research in the "Governance" section shows which institutional approaches can meet the challenges of the 21st century.
Security, Welfare, Liberty
In the "Governance" section, political scientists and economists examine ways to ensure security, welfare, and development as well as liberty and participation. They also analyze instruments that can help in achieving these goals.
Making political processes comprehensible
The professorships in the "Governance" section identify ways of tackling international environmental problems, how politicians behave in global negotiations over climate issues; how the institutional development of the European Union is progressing; how conflicts and wars arise between states and ethnic groups; which challenges will shape security policy in the coming years; and how poverty can be combated in developing countries.
