Conflicts over land in Latin America and sub-Saharan Africa in times of global transformation,
together with Prof. Bettina Engels, Freie Universität Berlin. Duration: 2014-2019.
“Global change – local conflicts? Land conflicts in Latin America and sub-Saharan Africa in the context of interdependent transformation processes” (GLOCON) is a Junior Research Group working on the correlation between global change and local conflicts over land. The research project explores how global spatial-temporal transformation processes affect local land conflicts in sub-Saharan Africa and Latin America. Its focus lies furthermore on the analysis of systematic similarities and differences between those regions. GLOCON analyses and compares conflicts over land in a range of sub-Saharan and Latin American countries.
Between dead end and energy transition: A social-ecological multilevel analysis of transnational biofuel policies,
Freie Universität Berlin. Duration: 2009-2013.
What are the socioeconomic impacts of biofuel production? To what extent can these fuels be produced and used in a socially and environmentally compatible way? Do they make an indispensable contribution to the energy transition or do they instead lead to a dead end? These questions are to be solved by Fair Fuels?, a junior research group funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF).
