The Structure and Organisation of Governments Project (SOG-PRO) maps and analyses the dynamics of structural changes in the formal organisation(s) of central governments in France, Germany, the Netherlands and the UK from 1980 to 2013. SOG-PRO is a collaborative research project, funded by the Open Research Area for the Social Sciences (ORA plus) and involves researchers in the four European countries.
Please find further information on our research agenda, the SOG-PRO research fellows and first results and publications from the project on this homepage. At the moment, we are in the late stages of collecting data and are entering the analysis phase of the project - thus the pages will be updated regularly.
At a later stage of the project, we will also make our codebook and the comparative dataset available.
