Introduction
My current research engages with the social and political effects of introducing speculative, large-scale interventions into the climate system ('geoengineering' technologies) as a climate policy option. This includes studying the responding perceptions of policy makers, studying the responding rhetoric of international organizations, and studying the responding behavior of public and private actors with high levels of GHG emissions.

Presentation
Full-text available
This presentation summarizes the findings of a project that investigated how the different actors involved in the Milieudefensie vs. Royal Dutch Shell court case used climate science to make their arguments. It explains how this case can be understood as a form of 'anticipatory climate litigation', and how science plays a different role here than i...
Article
Full-text available
This article, and the special issue it introduces, seek to contribute to the emerging and much-needed dialogue between the study of global governance and the study of social complexity. We hold that, while there is wide acceptance that global governance is becoming increasingly complex, studying this complexity still faces significant challenges in...

This article identifies diverse rationales to call for anticipatory governance of solar geoengineering, in light of a climate crisis. In focusing on governance rationales, we step back from proliferating debates in the literature on ‘how, when, whom, and where’ to govern, to address the important prior question of why govern solar geoengineering in...

Available to download on: https://research.wur.nl/en/publications/political-perspectives-on-geoengineering-navigating-problem-defin Geoengineering technologies are by definition only effective at scale, and so international policy development of some sort will be unavoidable. It is therefore important to include governability as a dimension when a...
Article
Full-text available
Numerous recent studies project that ‘climate engineering’ technologies might need to play a major role in the future. Such technologies may carry major risks for developing countries that are often especially vulnerable to, and lack adaptive capacity to deal with, the impacts of such new technologies. In this situation, one would expect that devel...
Article
Full-text available
Analyses of climate engineering (CE) governance have accelerated in the last decade. A key claim is that CE remains a largely ungoverned space, with shared norms, institutional arrangements, and formal rules to regulate CE not yet present. In contrast, here it is argued that de facto governance of CE is underway, discernible in an ordering of this...
Article
Full-text available
How and why do institutional architectures, and the roles of private institutions therein, differ across separate areas of climate governance? Here, institutional complexity is explained in terms of the problem-structural characteristics of an issue area and the associated demand for, and supply of, private authority. These characteristics can help...

Project
The group aims to connect people that are interested in questions of legitimacy, equity, institutional complexity, private actors and knowledge production in polycentric climate governance.
Project
The project seeks to generate novel insights into the shape, causes and consequences of institutional complexity for three key areas of climate governance: geoengineering, reducing emissions from deforestation and forest degradation (REDD) and short-lived climate pollutants. Based on these insights, we seek to develop approaches to mitigate conflicts and enhance synergies among institutions.
