Peter H. Feindt is Professor of Agricultural and Food Policy at the Albrecht Daniel Thaer Institute for Agricultural and Horticultural Sciences at Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin. Previously, he was Professor of Strategic Communication at Wageningen University (2013-2017), Senior Lecturer/Reader for Environmental Policy and Planning at Cardiff University (2007-2013) and Senior Researcher at University of Hamburg (2000-2007). Holding a PhD in Political Science, he is also an experienced facilitator and mediator in public policy dialogues. His research addresses a broad range of questions in agricultural and food policy, in particular links to environmental policy, sustainability transitions and the resilience of farming systems. Related interests include environmental and technology conflicts; public participation and conflict management; strategic communication, policy discourse and narratives; and inter- and transdisciplinary collaboration. Peter is co-editor of the Journal of Environmental Policy and Planning and chairs the Scientific Advisory Council for Biodiversity and Genetic Resources at the German Federal Ministry of Food and Agriculture.
