This research is especially concerned with political institutions and processes, the organisation and control of public administration and the initiation and evaluation of reforms in public policy.
In 2015 we researched into:
- The consequences of joint control for administrative management and what changing governing regimes mean for the management roles.
- Attitudes among fishermen in six local communities in western Norway and in northern Norway to the petroleum industry in general and seismic surveys in particular.
We have actively participated in the municipal reform process through participation in the county governor’s resource group and through many presentations and newspaper pieces in Rogaland.
