In this new administrative situation, the government no longer holds a monopoly on power, with priorities, direction and accountability now spread across complex networks.
The Public Governance research group is investigating how governance can be organised effectively in these complex networks, with a particular focus on the role of national government. The research group analyses trends, develops conceptual frameworks and carries out empirical research into actual governance situations, to find out how priorities, direction and accountability are organised in a number of policy fields and the kinds of demands this places on policymakers and national civil servants.
