Governance and Global Affairs
Welcome to the Faculty of Governance and Global Affairs, Leiden University’s newest faculty, located in The Hague.
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.
