Our claim: To find answers to global challenges PAIR is a study pro­gram in po­lit­i­cal and ad­min­is­tra­tive sci­ence mainly taught in Ger­man. It ad­dresses stu­dents who want to an­a­lyze po­lit­i­cal sys­tems in mod­ern so­ci­eties from a na­tional, in­ter­na­tional, and Eu­ro­pean per­spec­tive. At the same time - and from the per­spec­tive of or­ga­ni­za­tional re­search and mod­ern man­age­ment the­ory - na­tional and in­ter­na­tional or­ga­ni­za­tions are an­a­lyzed, and a wide knowl­edge of pub­lic man­age­ment in mod­ern states is taught. Thus, the stu­dents learn to an­a­lyze and solve com­plex prob­lems of de­ci­sion-mak­ing and gov­er­nance in the pub­lic sec­tor in their po­lit­i­cal, legal, eco­nomic, and so­cial con­text.
