Please note that the Working Paper Series was discontinued in 2012.
The Working Paper Series of the Hertie School of Governance is intended to provide visibility, internally as well as externally, to the current academic work of core faculty, other teaching staff, and invited visitors to the School. High-quality student papers will also be published in the Series, along with a foreword by the respective instructor or supervisor. Papers are to be submitted to Stein Kuhnle, who is in charge of the Series.
Authors are exclusively responsible for the content of their papers and the views expressed therein. They retain the copyright for their work. Discussion and comments are invited. Working Papers will be made electronically available through this website. Contents will be deleted from the homepage when papers are eventually published; once this happens, only name(s) of author(s), title, and place of publication will remain on the list. If the material is being published in a language other than German or English, both the original text and the reference to the publication will be kept on the list.
