LEARNING GOALS Knowledge • Knowledge about how the civil servant’s position and role is being changed and challenged by a context in which policy problems and solutions commonly cross territorial, administrative and sectoral borders • Knowledge about how position and role of a civil servant varies according to administrative levels, political processes and multi-level decision making processes. • Knowledge about the civil servant’s communication need and methods in an intercultural context. Skills • Analyse the civil servant’s position and role according to different administrative levels, governance modes and stages in the policy process. • Analyse and react to challenges facing modern public administration in the above mentioned context. Competencies • Manage a professional situation under time constraints and be able to prioritise and structure time and matter. • Give and receive constructive feedback on one’s own and others work • Communicate professional knowledge in an easy accessible way both orally and written.
The course focuses on the many roles assigned civil servants in times when public policy problems often cross territorial, administrative and sectoral boundaries and, moreover, in times when the way in which these problems are addressed often rely on different modes of governance. The course further focuses on the civil servants’ different communicative tasks and methods used depending on where in the administrative structures the civil servant is working and at which point in the policy process the communication is meant to play a role.
