About Ylva Norén Bretzer

Research interests
I have developed a broad understanding for Public Administration, as citizen’s trust in government and in political institutions. Public administration denotes the policy process from decision to outcome, as the citizens sees it, as street-level bureaucrats sees it – or from the point of program evaluation. My major sector interests are environmental politics, energy politics, the politics of democracy and institutional design.

Current research
Learning for Collaborative Energy Efficiency in Residential Urban Areas (ClueE). A multi-disciplinary project including partners from law, finance, global studies, and SP (Sveriges tekniska forskningsinstitut). Ylva Norén Bretzer is the scientific project leader. Financed by FORMAS and Energimyndigheten. Duration 2011 – 2012.

I am course responsible of FH 1301, Theory of science and Methods (Vetenskapsteori och metod), 15 hp.

I also teach HS 1100, Politics and steering in the health sector (Politik och styrning i hälso- och sjukvården).

I have been the adviser of numerous student essays, do not hesitate to discuss your essay topic with me.

In the present ClueE-project, we collaborate with municipalites in order to find successful preconditions and incentives for energy efficiency.

Participated in the EU funded project C-FORS, Governance for Sustainability 2007-2009. Analysed the implementation of the EU Air Quality Directive in local Swedish administration.

Participated in Storstadssatsningen i Göteborgs stad as scientific evaluator.Several commissions as an evaluator have contributed to develop my transdisciplinary and collaborative skills.
