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.
Rosa Groen studies four Western European cities and their policies towards International Organizations. Why do cities want to host International Organizations so badly that they compete more and more on an international level? How come that, due to globalization, these policies of attracting and retaining organizations are in constant change, and what are the factors of success and failure of these policies? These questions are studied by focusing on the policy networks, their lobbying strategies and some cases of successfully and not successfully attracted International Organizations. Since 2015 Rosa Groen is working on her PhD at the Dual PhD Centre at Leiden University. At the Research Group Public Governance she works as a researcher since 2018, under supervision of Dr. H.C. Theisens. In November 2014 Rosa Groen started her PhD trajectory about four cities and their policy towards International Organizations: The Hague, Vienna, Geneva and Copenhagen. The Hague University of Applied Sciences supports her research, and she has a study grant of The Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research since April 2015. After her research master in History at the University of Amsterdam, Rosa Groen studied in Madrid at Universidad Complutense and worked as a (free lance) journalist, after finishing a post academic course in journalism at the Erasmus University in 2009. Since 2010, she works as a lecturer at The Hague University of Applied Sciences at the program Business Management Studies at the Faculty of Management & Organization.email@example.com
My name is Katja Rusinovic and I work as a senior researcher at The Hague University of Applied Sciences. I received my doctorate in sociology at the Erasmus University of Rotterdam in 2006, with my dissertation on immigrant entrepreneurship in the Netherlands. As a postdoctoral researcher, I worked on a research project on citizenship and transnational involvement of highly skilled migrants. In the past years, I supervised and conducted many other qualitative research projects, among which a project on labour migration from Central and Eastern Europe. From 2012-2016 I worked as an assistant professor and director of the master’s program Sociology at the UvA before joining the HSS in 2017. My current research activities centre on (urban) governance issues in the field of housing, education and (super-) diversity, among which the research project Housing in an ageing society: an urgent task for urban governance. Recently, the magazine ‘Working in a world of super-diversity’ was published (together with Vincent Smit and Radboud Engbersen). The project was a collaboration between the HHS and Platform31. In addition, I have been involved in the Erasmus + project Socially Engaged Universities since December firstname.lastname@example.org
