Kutsal Yesilkagit is professor of International Governance at the Institute of Public Administration.

As a professor of public administration Kutsal Yesilkagit is driven by the desire to understand how political-administrative systems function. His work is all about doing research and teaching on how politicians, civil servants, and public institutions affect the outcomes of policies, societal events and thereby eventually affect the lives of individual citizens and private groups.

Nowadays, particular challenges to our societies and the institutions constituting them comes from the internationalisation of demographic, social, and economic problems. National states are in a process of adapting to varieties of post-national, international modes of governance, i.e. finding ways to cooperate and coordinate efforts in cross-border fashions to steer and solve, amongst others, our energy, climate, trade, security, and inequality problems. It are these issues that Yesilkagit addresses together with his Leiden and international colleagues, working closely together in international and European research networks.
