Our group conducts research across multiple disciplines, with forest policy and planning as the bearing subjects.
The research ranges from forest planning at landscape level to comparative forest policy studies at national level, with focus on European countries.
Members of our group also conduct people-centric studies of locally-managed natural resources in diverse socioeconomic contexts around the globe.
