Mapping Fragmentation across Governance Architectures: The Internship

August 18, 2014 in Uncategorized by Flavia Guerra

One of the goals of the CONNECT project is to take stock of the existing level of fragmentation across a number of policy domains of Global Environmental Politics (e.g. biodiversity, forestry and fisheries). In order to achieve this, it was necessary to map not only the institutional settings, but also the full spectrum of international agreements governing each domain. Gladly we had some help.

Funded by the Leonardo da Vinci programme, Flávia Guerra joined our team in January 2014, under the supervision of the research leader Dr Philipp Pattberg. During her six months at the Institute for Environmental Studies (IVM) in Amsterdam, Flávia assisted in research, particularly data collection, that was essential for our next steps: operationalizing the methodology to measure fragmentation.

The poster that follows this summary represents one of her research outputs, as well as an illustration of our mapping criteria and methodology.
