The Institute of Development Policy of the University of Antwerp is seeking to fill a full-time (100%) vacancy for a doctoral researcher in the area of Sustainable Development and Environmental Justice.
The researcher will seek to engage with questions of power and dynamics pertaining to the interaction between city councils, financial investors and citizenship at the time of climate emergency.
More specifically, the aim of the research will be to conduct a comparative, power-sensitive and socially-informed analysis of the way in which two or more cities use or plan to use Green Bonds to finance their climate change adaptation and mitigation plans. This will include an examination of the identification of priorities, democratic participation, indebtedness and transformation of the regulatory and governance framework.
The deadline for applications is 28 November 2019.
