Current research and teaching

One of the core phenomena in today’s international relations is a growing degree of institutional fragmentation. Ongoing regulation and legalization processes have led to material and functional overlaps between international institutions. This institutional fragmentation matters: it alters it alters aspects of power, legitimacy and effectiveness of governance processes.

In different research collaborations I investigate the degree, causes and consequences of fragmentation for global environmental governance. This includes the new NAVIGOV project with its focus on climate geoengineering and reducing emissions from deforestation and forest degradation (REDD).
Environmental governance is also at the core of my teaching, together with issues of international development and global trade.
