CORA - Centre for Public Regulation and Administration
The centre aims to clarify the development of fundamental values and principles of law in an age where Europeanization and globalisation of the society has led to an increase in public regulation and administration of specific spheres of life. As such, the centre will research and critically analyse the changing faces of governmental power in public law.
The centre covers research in the field of public law - including interdisciplinary research related to this field - which deals with the development of public regulation and administration. In particular, the centre explores the development of the fundamental values and principles of law concerning the interaction between state, administration and citizen.
