Prof. Dr. Andreas Thiel


IRI THESys member Andreas Thiel is researching the transformation of water and marine governance from an agricultural and institutional economics’ point of view: Which rules define how we deal with water? Who lays down those rules? Who enforces and effectuates them? And how are these issues currently changing in Europe?
