Franz Koranyi is a doctoral student at the Department of Educational Research and Social Systems.
Having studied political science and public administration (B.A. in Public Management and Governance) at Zeppelin University in Friedrichshafen, Germany, he graduated in sociology and social research at the University of Kent, Canterbury, England, with an emphasis on the third sector (M.A. in Civil Society, NGO and Non-profit studies).
Therefore, Franz Koranyi’s main research interest is pointed towards the governance and policies in school education, focusing on civil society involvement and organizations of the third sector (e.g., trust and foundations, associations, etc.). Within his PhD, he wants to understand how ‘regionalization’ as a change in governance of school education influences the perceptions and action of ‘out-of-school organizations’. Methodologically, he primarily worked with methods of qualitative social research during his studies and is particularly experienced in expert interviews and qualitative content analysis.
