Organisational unit: Research Theme
The Market and Public Organisation research theme combines expertise in economics, geography and law to examine the intersection between public and private sectors of the economy and to understand how best to organise and deliver public services. Research is carried out in the Centre for Market and Public Organisation (CMPO).
Market and Public Organisation is an area which concerns governments all around the world. CMPO has strong international links and produces leading international research that aims to contribute to public debate and inform policy-making.
Research within CMPO focuses on the analysis of public service organisations in terms of incentives, markets and information. Research areas include: responses to incentives and market-like institutions; individual differences in public service motivation; the role of performance indicators and outcome targets in the behaviour of organisations; and the spatial dimension to public service outcomes.
