Karlijn Muiderman is a researcher on the "Re-imagining anticipatory climate governance in the world's vulnerable regions" (RE-IMAGINE) project at the Wageningen University and Research Environmental Policy Group and at the Utrecht University Environmental Governance Group. RE-IMAGINE is a joint effort between Utrecht University, Wageningen University & Research, the University of Oxford and the CGIAR Programme on Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security (CCAFS) Scenarios Project. Her main area of research focuses on making the connection between climate foresight and climate governance to analyse how anticipating diverse climate futures is linked to realizing appropriate and effective modes of climate governance in the worlds most vulnerable regions.
In addition to this, Karlijn is a PhD candidate at the Utrecht University on anticipatory climate governance. Karlijn holds an MSc in International Development Studies from the University of Amsterdam, carrying out research on urban resilience to climate change in low coastal elevation zones, and an MA in Journalism from the University of Wales. Before joining WUR, Karlijn worked as a knowledge broker for The Broker and for the Food & Business Knowledge Platform, as a policy member on international cooperation at the Dutch House of Representatives and for various nongovernmental organisations. She acquired experience in multi-stakeholder and multi-level governance processes, particularly on the future sustainability of food systems and human security under climate change from an integrative perspective, and on the politics of long-term planning in the face of scientific uncertainty and complexity.
