I. Comparative Public Policy

In this research stream, we look at the design, form and content of policy instruments from a comparative perspective. We seek to make policy measures measurable and to compare them across countries. The points of interest are changes in economic, employment, social and family policies through external (EU) and internal (demographic change, gender roles, party competition) factors. On a more general level, we are interested in the relationship between state and market dynamics.
