Governance

Governance research deals with complex systems (e.g. constitutional, legal and financial systems) as well as with the position of different actors in civil society. The political space within which national governments can act continues to narrow in a globally connected world. Growing transparency and global communication networks increase the number of actors involved in governance. This leads to decision-making and decision impacts becoming increasingly confusing and often forces those involved in the process to act on an un-informed basis.
