Master European Public Health, master Global Health (English)

In the master European Public Health and the master Global Health I give lectures about themes like

  • the relationship between science and policy,
  • the meaning of implementation,
  • the specific status of scientific knowledge
  • public health and citizenship
  • the politics of evidence based public health
  • processes of standardization and localization.
