About Frederik Pfeiffer

I am a PhD candidate in Political Science at the University of Gothenburg since fall 2022. My interests include deliberative democracy, environmental politics, collective action, public opinion, and democratic processes.

I hold a BSc in International Economics and European Studies from the University of Tübingen (Germany) as well as a MSc in Comparative Public Policy and Welfare Studies from the University of Southern Denmark (Denmark).

I teach in the courses "Environmental Problems within Social Science: From Tragedy of the Commons to Planetary Boundaries", "Environmental Politics and Institutions", "European Marine Directives and Policies - an Interdisciplinary Perspective" (spring semester), and in the course "Swedish Politics in a Comparative Perspective" (fall semester), and I supervise students writing their Master or Bachelor theses in Political Science and in European Studies.
