Sabine Kuhlmann elected Fellow of the National Academy of Public Administration
Sabine Kuhlmann, public administration scholar from Potsdam, was appointed Fellow of the National Academy of Public Administration (NAPA) on November 7, 2019. Sabine Kuhlmann is the only European in this year's New Fellows cohort and the third German public administration scholar in the NAPA. The independent organization has been in existence since 1967 and has been established by the American Congress. It consists of 900 high-ranking members of the US administration as well as renowned scientists who are appointed for life. The aim of NAPA is to support the US government and administration in making procedures, processes and organizational structures of public service provision and policy formulation more effective, efficient and transparent.
"It is of particular concern to me to bring the external and European view into the American reform debates and the NAPA community. This is also increasingly important for our colleagues there - especially in view of the current problems in the country and the upcoming presidential elections next year - as numerous talks on the ground have clearly shown me," says Sabine Kuhlmann.
Sabine Kuhlmann is a professor at the University of Potsdam since 2013. She holds the Chair of Political Science, Administration and Organization and is Vice-Chairwoman of the National Regulatory Control Council (NKR), which advises the Federal Government on issues of bureaucracy reduction and better regulation. Since June 2019, she is holder of the Hedda Andersson Chair at the University of Lund in Sweden.
