How is the international climate regime evolving? What are the implications of climate policy and the transition to clean energy for international politics and economics? How will Norway’s position in the world be affected by these changes?
The group conducts academic and applied research on such questions. The geographical scope of this research is global. We use both quantitative and qualitative research methods, with an emphasis on mixed methods, big data, creation of new datasets through data scraping, and in-depth knowledge when we do research on specific counties. We aim to produce research with high academic impact and policy relevance.
The group cooperates with colleagues at institutions such as Harvard University, Cornell University, NY University, Stiftung Wissenschaft und Politik, Ghent University, Tampere University, the OSCE Academy, and the ASEAN Center for Energy.
The group is lead by Research Professor Indra Øverland.
Some publications produced by members of the group include:
- The misallocation of climate research funding
- Renewable energy and geopolitics
- The ASEAN climate and energy paradox
- Energy democracy as a process, an outcome and a goal
- The GeGaLo Index: Geopolitical Gains and Losses after Energy Transition
