Sara Holmgren
My research profile is empirically focused on forest related governance with a special interest in knowledge / power dynamics. I am interested in how different discourses shape and are shaped by people's views on the forest and its use, political agendas, and those who participate / do not participate in forest management and decision-making at different levels in society.


In my current reserach, I focus on the Swedish bioeconomy transformation and investigate competing imaginaries of forest futures including different knowledge claims, ideologies, identities and practices. I am also involved in projects exploring the complex interactions between people, forest landscapes and politics in times of forest fires.
