Successful Defense of Dissertation
Sandra Plümer, research associate at the Comparative Politics and Public Policy Research Group, successfully defended her dissertation on 29 November 2023 and graduated with summa cum laude (with highest distinction). Her research focused on policy learning in German school and education policy, leading to major policy change.
Members of the defense committee were Karl-Rudolf Korte (University of Duisburg-Essen, first supervisor), Karin Ingold (University of Bern, second supervisor), Andreas Blätte (University of Duisburg-Essen) and Ulrike Berendt (University of Duisburg-Essen).
Sandra Plümer will continue working on policy learning and change as well as on theories of the policy process.
Sonja Blum and the whole Comparative Politics and Public Policy Research Group sincerely congratulate Sandra Plümer on this great achievement.
