Sand dunes meeting the ocean

Organised by the SSH Network.

We invite you to this exciting discussion of IPBES – an expert organization or a transformative agent? Opportunities, risks, and what is social science expertise in all this?

Speaker: Karin Gustafsson from Örebro University, Sweden. She has a special interest in studying knowledge production and relations between knowledge producers. Her research focuses on science's role in international environmental governance, international expert organizations' socialization of young scholars, and the importance and role of social science expertise in creating a sustainable transformation of society as an answer to climate change and biodiversity loss.
