Research Profile

I am a postdoctoral research fellow on the project ‘Challenges and Opportunities in a Fragmented Global Energy and Climate Governance’ funded by the Swedish Energy Agency. The overall aim of the project is to map the institutional complexity of global climate and energy governance, evaluate its effectiveness and legitimacy, and to develop a knowledge base for decision-makers.

My PhD thesis from Linköping University (Nasiritousi 2016) examined the roles of non-state actors in global climate change governance. I worked with the International Negotiations Survey to explore attitudes and opinions held by the diverse set of participants attending the international climate change negotiations on issues such as legitimacy and agency in global environmental governance.

Research Interests

Global environmental governance, Legitimacy, Effectiveness, Energy governance, Non-state actors, Climate change.
