A special focus is on political-economic, institutional, and cultural aspects of reform success and failure. In addition, students gain deeper insight into the specific aspects and challenges of institutional reforms at different levels and of the reforms of social and economic policies.
The course touches upon on a broad range of policy fields and thus adds to students’ competencies in topics such as e.g. the network industries (power sector, telecommu-nications and water supply), environmental policies, governance of the natural re-sources, etc.
From a methodological point of view, the course enables students to deepen their ana-lytical skills, their strategic thinking, and their decision-making competencies.
The course furthermore trains (inter-cultural) communication and negotiation skills.
Lecturers: Dr. Elkhan Sadik-Zada and Ruth Knoblich
