TIGRE NET: Transnational Initiative on Governance Research and Education Network

The Transnational Initiative on Governance Research and Education Network, or “TIGRE Net,” is an international group of scholars, students and field specialists dedicated to identifying the opportunities and challenges public managers confront in the global economy and to providing them with the strategies and skills necessary to overcome obstacles to domestic, cross-border and international coordination.

Outputs from the TIGRE Net include several academic conferences and workshops, which have been supported by a grant from the Canadian Social Science and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) and academic partners in the US, Italy and Canada.

Research from these events has or will be published in a number of academic outlets, including journals such as the International Journal of Public Administration (IJPA), the International Journal of Public Sector Management (IJPSM) and an edited volume to be published by the Taylor and Francis Group as part of the American Society for Public Administration’s (ASPA) series on public administration. Core partners of TIGRE Net include universities in the US (Central Michigan University & California State-Long Beach), Italy (the University of Rome “Tor Vergata” & the University of Macerata) and Canada (York University (Toronto) and Brock University (St. Catharines).
