Chair of Public Management & Public Policy


In the politico-administrative system, the major questions of the future are complex and interdisciplinary. For this reason, our chair of Public Management & Public Policy conducts research at the interface between business administration, public administration, political sciences and law. Public Managmenet analyses the goal-oriented development and management of the public sector and its entities.

Against the background of critical challenges – like high public debt and demographic changes – a key issue of Public Management & Public Policy is how public services can be fulfilled in an effective and efficient way under the condition of scarcity and rationality conflicts (e.g. conflicts between political, economic and legal rationalities). We strive to analyse problems and research question from the perspective of public management and policy research. A current enquiry of our research is to assess, how state/municipal owned-enterprises can be stronger integrated in the state- and administration modernisation..

Please use the "plus"-symbol on the left side to navigate in our homepage. Additionaly, you find a brief overview of our chair here:

  • With our research, we seek to contribute new insights to the scientific field and to solve practically relevant problems. We often work with internationally comparative reserarch designs. We use the geographic location of the Zeppelin University at the "trilateral" border as a special chance for comparisons between Germany, Austria and Switzerland - besides our other international research activities.
  • Our teaching is research-based as well as closely oriented on practical issues. Theoretical foundation and empirical findings are guiding principles for our teaching, too. In our courses, our students develop competences for the public sector in a national and international context, but also for the private sector. Moreover, an individual development of our students' personalities is important for us. This in one reason for using "Service Learning" as a form of teaching and conduct teaching / research projects with our cooperation partners.
  • With our media presence (link to German website), we want to make our research results more visible and usable, unfolding effects in ongoing discourses.
  • With our events and conferences (link to German website), we seek to offer a exchange forum for science and practitioners.
