Environmental Management and Governance

Environmental management and governance focuses on the complex linkages between human-environment systems and their socio-political realities. The field aims to understand the reasons of socio-environmental conflict behind local and global environmental issues, as well as provide socio-political and management solutions for a more sustainable use of natural resources.

The Environmental Management and Governance Cluster is engaged in a wide range of topics from local environmental problems over protected areas management to global environmental policy issues and environment-development conflicts in the Global South. Check our websites and contact the group’s faculty members for details about specific research opportunities and upcoming projects.
