My name is Dr. Tim Jäkel. I am a Lecturer at the University of Freiburg, Germany. From 2015 to 2021 I delivered as an Assistant Professor at the Higher School of Economics in Moscow, a Russian elite university. Prior to that I served at the German Research Institute for Public Administration in Speyer, Germany, the German University of Administrative Sciences, and the University of Freiburg, Germany. I am holding a PhD in Political Science from Heidelberg University, Germany.
What motivates this blog?
1. Walking down the street in Moscow I often recognized innovative practices in public administration. And I see odd things. The main objective is to inform interested peers about these bits and pieces that I consider to be interesting. (How) does public administration contributes to people’s well-being in a Metropolis of 15million compared to an average German city?
2. I am also spending time on acknowledging other peoples work on teaching public administration and politics.
