Aims, contents and method of the course

This seminar is exclusively for students of the Vienna School of Governance (ViGo). It lays the ground for their further work in the field of governance and for the forthcoming Visiting Professor's seminar towards the end of the winter term 2007.

Theory, methodology and methods of researching governance will be studied on the basis of relevant general texts and of the work of the professorial team of ViGo.

All ViGo professors will be invited to present their own research in the field, to explain their approaches on the levels of theory and methods, and to discuss the ViGo's PhD students.
