An extended fellowship at the Hanse Institute for Advanced Study has made it possible to work with a comparative health policy group at the University of Bremen.

Writing projects completed during this fellowship have been mostly concerned with problems of comparison and learning in health policy.

They have drawn on an association with the Bremen’s Collaborative Research Centre 597 on ‘Transformations of the State’, which includes a project led by Heinz Rothgang on the changing role of the state in health care systems across the OECD.

Joint publications include:

‘Health policy’, in the new Oxford Handbook of the Welfare State (with Heinz Rothgang);

‘Health care systems and the problem of classification’ in the Journal of Comparative Policy Analysis (with Lorraine Frisina);

and ‘Western Europe, health systems of’, in the International Encyclopaedia of Public Health (with Achim Schmid).
