Biography

Professor Andreas Thiel is Einstein Junior Fellow and temporarily appointed as Professor of Environmental Governance, heading a research group addressing this topic. He is an economist and environmental and spatial planner by training and holds a Ph.D. from Oxford Brookes University, School of the Built Environment in which he applied broad social science theory and political science to analysing Environmental Policy Integration in the transformation of water use in Southern Portugal. He was Visiting Fellow at Technical University of Lisbon, University of Lisbon, University of Seville and Manchester University and the Vincent and Elinor Ostrom Workshop in Political Theory and Policy Analysis, Indiana University, of which he is also an affiliated faculty member. His habilitation addresses the topic: Developing Institutional Economics for the Analysis of Social-ecological Systems.

Research Interests

Professor Thiel’s previous research focused on

  • the transformation of multi-level governance of the water and land use nexus (agricultural transformation) in the European Union, with specific focus on the Iberian peninsula and Germany;
  • the role of expertise and modelling tools in European impact assessment procedures;
  • wildlife management and
  • renewable energies.

His current interests address the way society and individuals organize individuals’ and collective interaction in agricultural production and interdependence mediated by Social-ecological Systems (SES), and their transformation. Professor Thiel specifically develops substantive research on understanding the drivers of scalar reorganization of agricultural and natural resource governance in the European Union, on evaluating and explaining the political dynamics underlying the transformation of local natural resource governance in Europe and beyond with a specific focus on the water-land use nexus in agriculture, on developing the corresponding methodologies, on the role of the state and scale in collective action for natural resources, and on the institutional analysis of adaptation to climate change. Research regions are: Europe, Eastern Africa and, more recently initiatives have been developed in the Middle East and Northern Africa.
