We do environmental and climate research
At the School of Global Studies, we conduct research within the subject Environmental Social Science. Our research focuses on environmental issues and analyses crucial aspects of human-nature relations applying different lenses and approaches. The research is problem-driven and relates to urgent global challenges of the 21st century, such as climate change, deforestation, biodiversity loss, urban growth, distribution of land and water resources as well as health and food security.
The department also offers a PhD Programme in Environmental Social Science that provides a platform for interrogating how we understand and investigate the relationships between society and the environment. The aim of the PhD programme is to educate researchers in undertaking the complex issues created by today's global challenges.
