Urban governance and politics
The Spaces of climate and energy laboratory (SpaceLab) group originating from the UiB Department of Geography has significant experience in urban governance and politics primarily in Norway and Europe, including studies of climate-related planning, mobility and inter-urban networks. The group uses qualitative approaches and case studies, as well as co-production of knowledge.
