Weitere Informationen, Programm und Anfahrt  >>



We are a network of about 250 researchers, mostly from political science, with a strong scholarly interest in environmental policy and politics, global environmental change, and the quest for global sustainable development. Most of us are members of the German Political Science Association (DVPW), although our group remains open to colleagues from other disciplines who wish to join us in our research programmes and debates. Our work encompasses traditional research questions of environmental policy and politics, but is also directly linked to the global research community active within the Human Dimensions of Global Environmental Change Research Programme.

We are currently focusing our research in particular on the following areas:

  • Institutional Dimensions of Global, Regional and Local Environmental Change

  • Industrial Transformation

  • Science and Political Decision-Making (from both an academic and a practical perspective)

Although many of our publications and websites are in German, increasing efforts are being made to publish more of our research in English. Please visit this website regularly for new English-language information about our work.
