Eric Brandstedt

Senior lecturer in Human Rights Studies and PhD. in Philosophy, PI of the project

I have worked on climate justice, intergenerational justice, methodologocal questions in normative political theory, and human rights. My main motivation has always been to make philosophical theorising useful to the public debate and policy-making. In this project, I'm interested in understanding how concrete injustice related to the ongoing energy transition can be examined and used as a basis for fair climate policies.

Vasna Ramasar

Associate Senior Lecturer in Human Ecology and PhD. in Sustainability Science

My work is framed within the broad field of political ecology and I seek to bring an interdisciplinary perspective to questions of development and sustainability. I have recently focused my research on the politics of scale within development and environmental governance in the areas of the energy crisis, health and the environment and water governance. I am also interested in feminist and decolonail approaches to environment and development.

My currently funded research is focused on social and environmental justice looking at just transitions and alternatives to development.

Henner Busch

Postdoctoral Researcher at the Department of Human Geography, PhD. in Sustainability Science

Busch focusses mainly on the socio-political aspects of energy systems. In particular, he is interested in how the benefits and burdens of energy projects are distributed or in other words: who wins and who pays? Geographically, he mostly focusses on the Nordics and Germany but has also contributed to research on the Baltic Sea Region and Canada.
