Management and Administration

The Management and Public Administration specification is devoted to organizational and administrative action in theoretical and practical terms. Our research covers these areas from diverse and pluralistic perspectives, including (public) management, organizational research, regulatory and administrative research, and multi-level governance and enforcement research.

Colloquium Management and Public Administration

The MAPA Colloquium serves as an inclusive platform for the presentation and discussion of all research on administrative and management topics in the department, whether advanced or in its early stages. It typically meets every other Wednesday from 12-13h. Details on how it is held can be found here.

Communication around the MAPA Colloquium program takes place via the MAPA mailing list. To subscribe to the mailing list, please send an email to mapa[at]
