Reforming the Welfare State: Accountability, Democracy and Management was a research project located at the Uni Rokkan Centre. The project was financed by the Norwegian Research Council through the VAM programme, and was headed by Professor Per Lægreid. On this website, you will find information about the project, participants, collaborators, news and updates and other relevant information. The idea is to make the website a resource for both those directly involved with the project and for the general public.

Please note: The project has now reached its end! A description of activities and publications can be found here

Please feel free to browse our website, particularly the News, Conference, People and Publications pages!
