  1. 1. Making Blue Carbon : Coastal Ecosystems at the Science-Policy Interface

    Author : Terese Thoni; BECC - Biodiversity and Ecosystem services in a Changing Climate; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; climate change; UNFCCC; science-policy interface; Blue Carbon; coastal ecosystems; klimatförändringarna; kustnära ekosystem; blått kol; relationen mellan vetenskap och politik; UNFCCC;

    Abstract : Climate change is a growing threat to mankind. The message from the scientific community is clear: we need to act fast and profoundly. The political response has, however, been slow. The likelihood that we will be able to meet our political climate goals only by reducing emissions is slim. READ MORE

  2. 2. Science-policy interaction in the governance of complex socioecological risks : The case of chemicals management in the Baltic Sea

    Author : Oksana Udovyk; Michael Gilek; Johan Hedrén; Sivlio Funtowicz; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Risk; Uncertainty; MSFD; HELCOM; REACH; post-normal science; precautionary; participation;

    Abstract : In this thesis, I examine knowledge production and science-policy interaction associated with the management of chemical substances in the Baltic Sea under conditions of uncertainty and complexity. The thesis is primarily based on a qualitative analysis of policy documents and reports produced by the European Union (EU), the Helsinki Commission, the Swedish Chemicals Agency, and Gothenburg municipality, as well as 30 semi-structured interviews with scientific experts, policy makers, and government officials with knowledge and working experience in the relevant policy arenas.

  3. 3. Small science on big machines: Politics and practices of synchrotron radiation laboratories

    Author : Olof Hallonsten; Research Policy Institute (RPI); []
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; big science; little science; sophistication; collectivization; European Synchrotron Radiation Facility; Stanford Synchrotron Radiation Lightsource; MAX-lab; scientific entrepreneurs; changing dynamics of science; Synchrotron radiation; research policy; science policy;

    Abstract : Synchrotron radiation laboratories are large scientific facilities where various scientific experiments are carried out by the use of radiation produced by particle accelerators. Research with synchrotron radiation emerged in the 1960s and 1970s as a peripheral activity at particle physics laboratories. READ MORE

  4. 4. The Transformative Imagination : Re-imagining the world towards sustainability

    Author : Diego Galafassi; Victor Galaz; Tim Daw; Karen O'Brien; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; ways of knowing; transformations; complexity; futures; practice; transdisciplinarity; creativity; art-based; embodied meaning; action-research; science-policy; vetenskap om hållbar utveckling; Sustainability Science;

    Abstract : A central task for sustainability science in the Anthropocene is to offer guidance on alternative pathways of change. Even though this search and implementation of pathways towards sustainability is likely to require profound social-ecological transformations, little is yet known about the individual and collective capacities needed to support such transformations.

    Keywords : Co-management; Power; Governance; Conflict; Wolf governance; Neo-institutionalism; Commons; Fisheries; Knowledge; Open Source Software governance; Participation; Science-policy;

    Abstract : This thesis contributes theoretically and empirically to the research about complex commons governance systems that are characterized by numerous and diverse agents, complex distributions of power, incomplete and competing knowledge as well as diverse contestation and conflict processes. Governance refers to a system of public and/or private coordinating, steering and regulatory processes established and conducted for social (or collective) purposes. READ MORE
