Workshop on „Rethinking the Governance of European Water Protection“

IRI THESys PhD student Nadine Schröder organizes a small conference on Water Governance in Europe on the occasion of the EU review process on the Water Framework Directive.
What do we know and what do we need to know to improve European Water Protection through Governance Mechanisms?

Tuesday/ Wednesday January 8th – 9th 2019 UFZ Leipzig

During this workshop we want to discuss on European Water governance and to address frameworks/ lenses/ concepts/ theories and methods to research water governance: Which factors, levels and scales do they focus on? Which roles play participation, sector integration and basin approaches? We draw conclusions how the governance might be improved in favor of better performance: Which factors may influence local, regional and national success or failure? Are best-practice examples identifiable empirically?

Additionally, we critically reflect how the chosen frameworks and methods predetermine the findings of regulating parameters. We aim for joint products as results of the workshop, like e.g. a special issue, a book, joint conference panels, seeding joint projects, work on the science-policy interface, a manifest and so on, which is open to be discussed and depends on the interest of the participants.
