Ina Möller joined ENP through the Wageningen Graduate Schools PostDoc talent programme. She works together with Prof. Aarti Gupta on anticipation and transparency in the governance of climate change. Her principal research focuses on the politics of climate geoengineering, comprising a range of speculative, large-scale interventions into natural systems that are envisioned to stabilize global average temperature. She is also a core-member of Wageningen University's TRANSGOV project, analysing the implications of increasing demand and delivery of transparency in global climate governance.

Ina co-chairs a working group on the politics of geoengineering under the Climate Social Science Network, an international network of social science scholars who focus on understanding the political dynamics of climate change. She is also a research fellow with the Earth System Governance project, the largest network of social scientists engaging with interlinkages between social and environmental systems.

Ina completed her PhD at Lund University`s Department of Political Science in a project on institutional complexity in climate change governance, where she wrote her PhD thesis on the Emergent Politics of Geoengineering. She has an MSc in Environmental Studies and Sustainability Science from Lund University, and a BA in Political Science and Public Administration from the University of Konstanz. Prior to pursuing an academic career, she spent six months working for the United Nations Environment Programme office in Brussels.

CLENGOV: The politics of climate engineering governance. Speculative technologies to engineer the climate by enhancing the Earth's reflectivity or its capacity to absorb carbon dioxide are becoming increasingly pronounced in discussions on how to address the climate crisis. At the same time, their appearance on the scientific and political agenda raises concerns about the implications of considering still largely imaginary technologies as a part of climate policy. This project, funded by the Wageningen PostDoc talent programme, explores the interface between scientific expertise and policy making in the case of climate engineering. In particular, it studies how actors who are highly relevant to global mitigation efforts are integrating ideas about climate engineering into their anticipatory policies, and if this comes at the expense of emissions reductions.

TRANSGOV: Assessing the transformative potential of transparency in multilateral climate governance. Transparency is widely assumed to help promote accountability, enhance trust and improve environmental outcomes through greater information disclosure. Yet these assumptions are still unter-theorized and their realization in practice has not been systematically analyzed. This four year NWO funded project, led by Prof. Aarti Gupta, addresses these research gaps, with a focus on the voluntary climate commitments that states and non-state actors have made relating to the 2015 Paris Agreement. The project implements a multilevel empirical analysis of variable country engagement with the ever-expanding transparency arrangements in global climate governance, and the political effects of this engagement.


Ina is involved with teaching the ENP-30306 International Environmental Policy course at Masters level, where she gives both lectures and seminars. She also supervises Masters theses on topics related to her research area.
