Data Science Research Programme

Governance and Global Affairs

The Faculty of Governance and Global Affairs

Facing important socio-cultural issues of the 21st century like climate change, terrorism and economic crises, requires a substantial and in-depth scientific knowledge. But this knowledge alone is often not enough. At the Faculty of Governance and Global Affairs these themes are studied through a  combined perspective of public administration, political science, law, sociology and economics. This interdisciplinary approach gives the Faculty’s research and teaching its cross-border character.
