Current Research

My research interest lies in the challenges that foremost environmental problems pose to society. The time horizons for these issues are long and scientific knowledge as well as cooperation over political levels, sectoral and disciplinary boundaries are needed to manage them. A main focus in my research is how our political systems manage scientific uncertainty. I study this in several ongoing projects, for example, in a project on the sustainable distribution of responsibility in Swedish climate adaptation and in a large international project on countries’ covid-19 responses (CompCore). Two of my ongoing projects are focused on policy-making processes on policy instruments (one on the adoption of carbon pricing policies, and the other on the reform of fossil fuel subsidies). Two additional policy instruments/ideas that I study are biodiversity offsetting and green infrastructure. Both concern land use and the management of conflicts around it. A fourth perspective in my research concerns the role of science in society.
