Background and activities

PhD project:

Why do states often turn to foreign policy when looking for solutions to climate political dilemmas? This is important because we need to know more about what climate solutions that are politically feasible - for individual countries and when the international community searches for collective solutions to a global problem. This project highligts the political implications of the climate solutions that are implemented and the factors that shape the climate political room of maneuvering in public policymaking.
