|Andrei Marin Norwegian University of Life Sciences|
Andrei Marin is interested in the interplay between natural and social processes of stability and change. His research has been focusing on social processes of adaptation to climate change, land tenure reform, and general institutional dynamics in Mongolia, Ethiopia, Kenya and Norway. His understanding such processes and interactions often relies on inter- and trans-disciplinary approaches from political ecology, political economy and historical institutionalism.
His current work in Mongolia
includes an investigation of the political aspects of climate change adaptation
and a historical investigation of the role large scale socio-economic
transformations have played in people’s ability to tackle adverse environmental
