About our research
At Public Administration we investigate the governance of complex public issues and government performance. We design strategies and interventions to deal with public issues on the basis of rigorous and innovative scientific methods. Knowledge is developed and shared in strong interaction with the broader academic community, our students, policymakers and other practitioners. Our research has strong connections with the city of Rotterdam and anchors in local, regional, national and international levels of governance. We strive to create a collaborative, diverse and committed community of scholars, who are world leading and innovative in public management, governance and policy research.
Public Administration in Rotterdam is part of the research school Netherlands Institute of Government (NIG).
