About Tilburg Institute of Governance

Tilburg Institute of Governance (TIG) is an innovative and multidisciplinary community of scholars interested in public governance and public sector issues.

TIG started in 2016 as an alliance of the Tilburg School of Economics and Management (TiSEM) and Tilburg Law School (TLS). TIG operates at the interface of the disciplines of Public Administration, Economics and Law. Each discipline offers different insights and tools to deepen our understanding of public governance issues. TIG closely collaborates with the practice of governance (e.g., cities such as Tilburg, Province of Noord-Brabant and other regional authorities, national ministries and agencies, European bodies).

Our mission is to contribute to the knowledge and practice of governance that is needed to address complex challenges in the public realm. As a network broker our expertise lies in connecting state-of-the-art insights and novel ideas on public values, law, economics, politics and organization.
