This new specialisation will be offered as from September 2014. For any public administration student, understanding the interaction between regulation and the market is crucial. What do governments regulate and how does regulation work without curbing competition? The programme builds on a solid foundation of core courses that creates understanding what markets are, how they are rooted in societal ideas and institutional frameworks. Having established an understanding that the relationship between states and markets and the varieties of capitalism specified by this relationship are at the core of government today, the programme offers a range of specialisation courses that deal with economic aspects of regulation and specific economic problems of policy sectors. The programme also aims at developing the quantitative skills of students, for analysing policy problems and regulatory challenges.
