The candidates will work within the scope of the research project "Discursive fragmentation of the international forest regime complex: Towards a better understanding of multi-level forest policy discourses", funded by the German Science Foundation (DFG). The project is part of a research group combining political science, international law and forest monitoring scholars in order to analyse the international forest regime complex.
Whilde PhD I is expected to conduct an analysis of discursive genealogies of forest policy in Germany, Sweden,
and the US, PhD II will research the history of forest-related discourses in four global environmental policy
processes over time (UNFF, CBD, UNFCCC and WTO/GATT).
