Workshop in Berlin

23-26 November 2020 | Workshop: Policy Making and Administration in Germany

This newly developed workshop in Berlin offers students the opportunity to experience the German machinery of government and policy-making first-hand and have interaction with Berlin-based experts, policy-makers and practitioners. The workshop aims to help participants to better understand the strengths and weaknesses of the German governance system in dealing with key policy challenges (e.g. climate change, welfare and social inequality, digitalisation, Covid-19) and critically reflect on how experiences can be transferred to other government systems. The workshop will combine sessions located at the Hertie School with visits to the Reichstag, Ministries and other public sector organisations.
