Comparative Public Policy, Administration and Regulation Research Group

Research Pillar(s): Public Policy and Administration

About: The study of public administration and public policy has been central to LSE’s mission and the Department of Government has been at the heart of internationally leading comparative public policy and administration research and teaching. More recently, it has extended its scope in the field of regulation.

The CPPAR research group’s core areas of research interest are:

  • Comparative Public Policy and Administration
  • Regulation and Governance
  • Executive Politics

Among the group’s strengths are its international outlook and its methodological and theoretical openness. The group has a substantial breadth and diversity of interests; including the study of public organisations, policy instruments, the interaction between politicians and bureaucrats, implementation and enforcement, sustainability policies, the relationship between expertise and politics, and regulatory policies.

The group has strong links with other research centres at LSE, in particular the Centre for Analysis of Risk and Regulation (CARR).
