Prof. Dr. Sabine Kropp wrote her dissertation on decentralization processes in the Russian multilevel system during the transformation phase as part of a VW project she carried out using the example of local and regional budget policy. She recently led a Metro Foundation-funded project that examined patterns of governance based on a case study design with more than 100 guided interviews, participant observation and document analysis at the regional level. Special attention was paid to the role of NGOs and companies in governance networks. She was also a member of an international research network funded by the Norwegian Research Council (2013-2016) and examined governance networks in Russian regions and different policy areas. Her main areas of work include the topics of comparative federalism and parliamentary research as well as administrative-political issues, which refers to both western democracies and post-socialist systems.
