About our research

Our faculty members carry out cutting-edge research on topics like combatting corruption, the impact of social enterprise, or mitigating climate change. Together with postdoctoral researchers, research associates and doctoral students, they address questions that cut across disciplines and straddle regional and sectoral boundaries.
