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 and political science methodology. My recent research has concentrated on the reform of the civil service and problems of corruption in Central and Eastern Europe and the Western Balkans. For results of this work, please see my publication Civil Service Laws, Merit, Politicization, and Corruption: The Perspective of Public Officials from Five East European Countries in the journal Public Administration.
My current project examines the impact of civil service management practices on corruption, clientelism and bureaucratic performance in Eastern Europe, Latin America, Africa and Asia. The project is funded by the British Academy - Department for International Development Anti-Corruption Evidence (ACE) Programme.
