Dr. phil. Kathrin Böhling
How politics, business and society interact in resource governance and what outcomes are generated is at the center of my research. I look at forestry and the mining sector to advance understanding on these questions.
Currently I am working on forest-related policy-making in the EU. Working with Helena Eisele, the project aims at enhancing the Bavarian forest administration’s capacity to promote its interests and preferences in the EU. It is funded by the Bavarian Ministry for Food, Agriculture and Forestry (1/2017 – 4/2020).
