Yesterday, I arrived in roasting hot Heidelberg, in the south-west of Germany. Heidelberg really is a stunning city, comprising winding Baroque streets that stretch up to the city’s castle, and is surrounded by tree-topped mountains.
I’m going to be here for five weeks, and I’m very grateful to INOGOV for funding me to come. I won one of their annual ‘Short-Term Scientific Missions’; or a Visiting Scholarship in other words.
I’m going to be working with Prof. Dr. Jale Tosun and her Ph.D. student, Nicole Schmidt. We’re going to be writing a paper together on polycentric climate governance, and the EU at the Paris climate change conference.
