The Department’s research has a strong emphasis on empirical evidence and theory-based methodological rigor. It is published in highly-ranked peer-reviewed outlets and often produced in cooperation with renowned scholars at academic institutions worldwide. The substantive scope of the research includes political, administrative and organizational structures, processes, and policies, analyzed from national, comparative and international perspectives.
Several research projects conducted by the Department’s scholars cover OSCE-related matters, such as the OSCE’s Contribution to the Police Reform in Kosovo or administrative styles in the OSCE Secretariat. In this regard, especially the Research Group for Public Administration and Organization Theory has to be made reference to.
