Politics and Governance

This key area addresses the challenge of understanding the articulation between how a society wants to live (politics) and the coordinated action (governance) undertaken to make this possible. The members wish to focus less on the State and more on the actions and practices constitutive of contexts for politics and governance. In addition to this, the KAA acknowledges the importance of knowledge that addresses practical problems, especially since these and policy issues might be an important source of inspiration for the identification of theoretical, conceptual and methodological challenges.
