The research profile of the NRW School of Governance compromises current themes and issues concerning the management of political ideas, mediated politics, comparative politics as well as public policy- and governance research. Another major research area is rooted in the regional politics of Germanys most densely populated state: North Rhine-Westfalia.
Furthermore a myriad of research perspectives focuses on the European- and International-level. At the NRW School of Governance we utilize a broad spectrum of theoretical and methodological approaches for our research, incorporating the wide range of political science research conducted at Institute for political Science at the University of Duisburg-Essen, one of the biggest Institutes for political Science in Germany.
The NRW School of Governance bundles the research activities of three professorial chairs of Prof. Dr. Karl-Rudolf Korte, Prof. Dr. Andreas Blätte and Prof. Dr. Christoph Bieber and includes senior research projects, dissertational projects, research groups as well as students research projects.
