MUNDUS MAPP embeds the scholarly field of transnational public policy into a European context. The degree of political integration makes the EU a unique laboratory for studying public policy beyond the nation-state.
Open to: EU and non EU students
Scholarship: full under Erasmus Mundus
Policy-making in the European space also involves the interaction of diverse cultural, political and bureaucratic structures. MUNDUS MAPP provides students access to this European model of transnational governance. These processes involve tremendous challenges to policy-makers but also create an enormous potential for policy learning and transfer. MUNDUS MAPP provides a systematic understanding of how political institutions, processes and public policies operate and interact from the global political economy through to national and local levels with a direct focus on European engagements at these levels of governance. Four universities from Britain, Hungary, the Netherlands and Spain deliver this programme.
