Currently, our research focuses on international organizations and international public administrations.
Andrea Liese’s project “’Talk and Action’: How International Organizations Respond to Areas of Limited Statehood” is guided by the following research questions: How do international organizations conceptualize “statehood” and “governance” in areas of limited statehood? Which factors (e.g. experiences made “on the ground”) explain these conceptualizations? The sub-project contributes to the Collaborative Research Center “Governance in Areas of Limited Statehood”, which receives funding from the German Research Foundation.
The project “Consideration of Expert Knowledge - International Public Administrations as Policy Experts” seeks answers to two research questions. 1. To what extent and under what conditions do states take into account expert knowledge and policy advice of international public administrations as a premise for further decisions and actions? 2. To what extent and why does the consideration of expert knowledge and policy advice of international public administrations by states vary across different international public administrations?. It is part of the Research Unit "International Public Administrations. The Emergence and Development of Administrative Patterns and their Effects on International Policy-Making", which receives funding from the German Research Foundation.
