Welcome to the new DFG Research Training Group “Standards of Governance”! The group is studying a set of norms and practices that are often subsumed under the heading “good governance”. It emerged from an interdisciplinary research initiative of ten principal investigators (PIs) from the Technical University of Darmstadt and Goethe University Frankfurt. The academic disciplines covered are political science, sociology, philosophy and law. On these pages you can find more information about the research program of the group and the PI team.
