This symposium will address the “transfer of ideas” approach in the study of the intellectual history of Europe and the United States, with a special focus on the hybridity of political and administrative ideas.

Comparative political science and public administration scholarship often refers to the notion of national political cultures and administrative traditions, to understand differences between states.

Empirical textual research shows, however, that traditions are historically hybrid, open for outside inspiration and influence through mutual learning.
