Peter L. Hupe studied Political Science, before being in public service for ten years. After re-entering Academia he specialized in the study of public administration and public policy. In the theoretical-empirical study of the policy process he approaches policy implementation as the operational part of governance. Central topics in his publications are street-level bureaucracy and professional autonomy. His current research focuses on the usage of discretionary authority and its impact on policy outputs.
