Thor Øivind Jensen, associate professor at the Department of Administration and Organization Theory, held a presentation for the Bergen Energy Lab on 07. November 2017. In his presentation, he spoke about political science and its role in solving the challenge of climate and energy.

Thor Øivind is also part of a very interesting ongoing project in South Africa, a focused comparative project looking at transition to sustainable energy systems in emerging economies.
