About Stig Montin

Background
In 1993, I obtained a Doctorate degree in Political Science at the Department of Political Sciences, University of Gothenburg. I became a Senior Lecturer in 1999 and Professor in 2007, at Örebro University. Professor in Public Administration (Local Politics and Administration) at School of Public Administration, University of Gothenburg, since 2012.

Over the years, I have developed courses, taught political science and public administration at all levels, served as Director of Studies, pursued research with entirely external and been active in collaboration with the community. Several research projects have been carried out together with researchers in other Nordic countries.

In addition, I have been a Research Manager/Director for the Centre for Urban and Regional Studies (CUReS) and the Research School on Public Affairs, both at Örebro University.
 

Research interests
My main empirical field of research has been and remains municipalities and regions, frequently in a Nordic comparative perspective. The overriding problems primarily concern democracy and control within various political arenas.

Currently, I am working mostly with questions that concern sustainable urban and regional development as well as municipalities from a multi-level perspective. This concerns both idea development and the policy actually pursued.

Current projects
Active as a researcher and Project Manager in Mistra Urban Futures in Gothenburg in the pilot programme "Multi-level control: Decision processes for sustainable urban and regional development". More information (external link).

Teaching
At first and second-cycle level, I an above all a supervisor and examiner for bachelor's projects and master's theses in the field of public politics and administration. In the third-cycle programme, I am a supervisor and teach a number of courses. Some of the courses in which I participate at first and second-cycle level are Democracy and Leadership in a Multi-level System, Implementation and Evaluation and Scientific Theory and Method.

Collaboration
Collaboration with the community is something that has permeated my work for many years. Among other things, this has taken the form of government commissions and various reference groups, training for municipal officers and collaboration with public servants on various projects. Within the framework of my role as Project Manager at Mistra Urban Futures, I cooperate with politicians and public officials in the Gothenburg region. In a Pilot Project on Multi-level and Cooperative Control, knowledge is being shaped jointly by researchers from different disciplines and public officials/experts. This is sometimes called transdisciplinary research.
