Our research programme aims to visualise, measure and explain changes in performance in public policy making and governance, mostly through international comparisons.
This programme includes:
- an Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) funded project on corruption
- Marie Curie funded research on regulatory reform
- research on the links between science and policy making
The international dimensions of policy making and governance are particularly important to us. Recent research includes:
- how defence procurement policies are influenced by domestic and international factors
- comparative study of Western perceptions and policies in response to the rise of China
