PhD projects:

Janne Thygesen: 'Dilemmas and discourses in wind power planning and development in Norway and Scotland'. Thygesen has compared the policy and planning process for wind power in Norway and Scotland. Scotland has seen faster and more extensive development in wind power than Norway since 2000, while levels of conflict are also considered to be lower. Thygesen will debate the PhD thesis at the Faculty of Social Sciences on Friday 17 June 2016. Read about the thesis on the UiS website: Wind power in Norway and Scotland
