Program Summer Semester 2014

 

Prof. Hagedorn, who initiated WINS, will present the conceptual and theoretical foundations of WINS, and the need to bridge across the varied frameworks currently used for institutional analysis of SES.

WINS is presently in a stage of formation. Within the interdisciplinary context of the Integrative Research Institute on Human Environment systems (IRI-THESyS), it shall serve as a platform for intense exchange of knowledge and mutual learning between scholars interested in the role of institutions in Social-Ecological Systems (SES).

Berlin’s environmental research community is among the most prolific in Europe and the world and we want to take advantage of that. Thus, throughout the 10 sessions of the series we will introduce the work of prominent scholars from Research Institutes that center around Berlin, including IRI-THESys, Leibniz Institute for Regional Development and Structural Planning (IRS), Potsdam Institute for Climate Change, Global Climate Forum, to mention a few. Additionally, we have visits by scholars from other European and US Universities.

“WINS Seminar” sessions will take place every Thursday, 3pm, during the summer semester (except for the public holidays).

On May 15, June 19, and July 10, the WINS Seminar (3pm) will precede the THESyS Lecture series (starting at 5pm).
