Research Unit:
Market Processes and Governance

The Market Processes and Governance Unit was established at the WZB in 2001. Its purpose is to undertake research into the governance problems of the public sector. Using a public finance perspective, the section analyses the way existing and alternative governance processes in market and state function with regard to their efficiency and distribution effects. The social security system, public education and taxation, including the aspect of the political strategies used by government actors, constitute the core of the research program. Particular attention is given here to the challenges that internationalisation poses for the public sector. The section’s research evaluates reform proposals and provides the economic policy makers with tangible recommendations.
