Opinion Articles

The ENGOV researchers do not only publish articles for a scientific audience. They also publish in newspapers and magazines about their research efforts and results. In these articles, the researchers give their ideas on different subjects related to environmental governance, mostly in their own countries and regions and occasionally in their mother language, in order to reach the local audience.

Below you can find a selection of the opinion articles that have been published by ENGOV participants so far:
