Pågående forskning

Political-institutional changes in China, the EU, India and USA and their consequences for Norwegian primary industry policies. The aim of this project is to develop new knowledge and understanding of the interests and strategies of key players in international trade negotiations. The study will focus on a) the political, economic and institutional developments in China, the EU, India and the USA which form and explain the interests, negotiating positions and strategies of these countries, and b) the consequences they may have for Norwegian area and nature based industries and policies.  The project is financed by the Norwegian Research Council (NFR).

Conceptual innovation and the development of environmental policy. This project will examine the role of conceptual innovation in the development of modern environmental governance. It will explore the links between the thought categories applied to understand environmental issues and the practices of environmental governance. The work involves case studies assessing the genesis and evolution of ideas central to modern environmental politics and policy. Concept such as 'critical loads', 'adaptive management', 'ecological footprint analysis', 'the polluter pays principle', and 'environmental assessment' are illustrative of the concepts to be studied.

The project involves three phases: first, an overall analysis of the concepts that contribute to framing contemporary environmental policy; secondly, detailed case studies of the development of a dozen critical concepts; and third, a comparative analysis of these cases and theoretical reflection on conceptual innovation and the development of environmental policy. The project operates on the boundaries between policy studies and political theory. It draws on theoretical resources on conceptual analysis and policy change. The first and third phases will be conducted by the PI (with support of RAs). The second phase will involve an international network of research collaborators with specialist knowledge in the specific concepts/policy domains chosen for detailed analysis (case studies). Project leader: Professor James meadowcroft, Carlton University, Canada. Funded by Research Council of Canada.
