Research of the Environmental Policy Group

The globalization of environmental problems are ever more influential in shaping our world. The rapidity and expanding spatial scale of these problems presents challenges to how societies are able to respond. Research at the Environmental Policy Group (ENP) produces fundamental knowledge on different forms of social and political practices and forms of organization that can enable a broad range of societal actors to deal with new and complex environmental risks at global, regional and local scales.
