Among the questions that Henrik Jordahl tries to answer with his research:

  • Why are publicly funded services sometimes contracted out to private providers and sometimes produced in-house by public sector employees?
  • How does the choice between public and private production influence costs and quality of publicly funded services?
  • How can we reform laws, rules and practices to improve the production of publicly funded services?
