Welcome to the homepage of Prof Jan-Hinrik Meyer-Sahling.

Professor of Political Science at the School of Politics & International Relations, University of Nottingham.

I am Professor of Political Science at the University of Nottingham, School of Politics and International Relations. I teach in the areas of comparative politics, comparative public administration, public policy, international development and political science methodology. My recent research has examined civil service reform and management in Eastern Europe, Latin America, Africa and Asia. The project – co-led with Dr Christian Schuster (UCL) and Dr Kim Sass Mikkelsen (Roskilde University) – was funded by the British Academy - Department for International Development Anti-Corruption Evidence (ACE) Programme.

For a summary of the project findings, please see our post for the World Bank Governance for Development blog 'Getting the Basics Right: How to Manage Civil Servants in Developing Countries' and our recent article ‘The Causal Effect of Public Service Motivation on Ethical Behaviour in the Public Sector: Evidence from a Large-Scale Survey Experiment’ published in the Journal of Public Administration Research and Theory.

My current projects examine the implementation of merit recruitment procedures in the Western Balkans - a collaboration with the Regional School of Public Administration (ReSPA) - and the impact of ethics training on corruption in the civil service in developing countries. The latter is funded by the new Global Integrity - Department for International Development Anti-Corruption Evidence (GI-ACE) Programme.
