Political Science: Public Policy and Governance (MSc)

Myrthe Born is an alumna of the Public Policy and Governance programme.

'I loved doing my own research.'

I wrote my thesis on the decentralisation of the Dutch health care system in 2015, and specifically about the different styles of governance used during the decentralisation process of the youth healthcare. I conducted a qualitative research, used a huge amount of academic literature, policy reports and evaluations and government documents, in addition to conducting many in-depth interviews with relevant respondents. I loved doing my own research, and I found that I had a lot of freedom in picking my subject and designing my research, but also received the necessary guidance from my thesis supervisor.
