Ina Möller works on institutional complexity, legitimacy and the science-policy interface in regional and global climate and food governance. Her principal empirical focus has been the field of climate geoengineering and the way that this contested concept has become part of contemporary policy making, for example through carbon dioxide removal or 'negative emissions technologies'. Other areas of study include the use of science in climate litigation, the impact of global models and scenarios on policy making, and the way in which actors navigate, use and shape environmental regimes.

Ina co-chairs a working group on the politics of geoengineering under the Climate Social Science Network, an international network of social science scholars that focus on understanding the political dynamics of climate change. She coordinates a Masters course on International Environmental Policy, and supervises both Masters and PhD students working on projects related to regional and global climate and/or food governance.

The politics of climate engineering. 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.


Ina coordinates the ENP-30306 International Environmental Policy course and co-coordinates the ENR-22806 Principles of Climate Change Economics and Policy at Masters level, where she gives both lectures and seminars. She also supervises Masters theses on topics related to her research areas.
