Inhoud
This module introduces students to the key concepts and challenges of public administration in the context of the fourth industrial revolution; an era in which the design of policies faces continuously evolving technological challenges. As a first module of the bachelor programme, this module is based on three conceptual and disciplinary elements: formal institutions, public administration, and the relationship between society and technology. The objective of this module is twofold. On the one hand the module introduces students to key actors, theories, and challenges related to public administration in a high-tech society; on the other hand, the module asks students to work in groups and tackle a contemporary technological challenge from a public administration perspective. To do so, the three conceptual elements of the module are integrated in the project theme “Governance of the cyberworld: the cybersecurity challenge”.
