Julia Fleischer

"My research agenda combines structure, agency, and policy perspectives. I am interested in the formal structure and organization of governments, including the inner structures of ministries, agencies, and other entities in the public sector, across countries and over time. In this field of study, we are currently conducting a larger research project comparing the corporatization of the state in Norway and Sweden from 1950 to 2020. The agency-perspective in my research focuses primarily on bureaucratic elites as well as contracted employees working in government, most notably consultants engaged in the digital transformation. In policy terms, my current research addresses the bureaucratic structure and agency in digitalization as well as in tax policy".
