Contested administrations: Conflict resolution and the improvement of democracy

Forskningsoutput: TidskriftsbidragArtikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift


This research programme focuses on Democracy and Public Administration, with an emphasis on making democratic institutions better fit to handle contested issues through the use of insights from Peace and Conflict Studies. We are interested in public administration’s role in addressing and (possibly) resolving contested issues and conflicts, in order to increase equality, strengthen processes
of integration and build social solidarity in an urban context. By bringing together
senior Danish and Swedish researchers from the field of public administration and peace
and conflict studies in an interdisciplinary research endeavour we are able to take an
original and unconventional approach to the study of public administrations in different
democratic contexts. We argue that this interdisciplinary research collaboration increases
scientific quality as well as the innovativeness of the research programme.
