Green Transformations in the Global South (GreeTS)
Contemporary societies exploit natural resources beyond the capacities of planet Earth. Thus, what is required by all countries to effectively tackle contemporary challenges such as climate change, energy and food security, air and water pollution, or loss of biodiversity is more than a technocratic fix or the adjustment of singular policy measures?Mehr erfahren
Public Panel: "Engineering Life? Responsible Research and the Limits of Design"
European science policy calls for “Responsible Research and Innovation”. This applies to Synthetic Biology even in its early stages of fundamental research. Regardless of whether it will “engineer life”, Synthetic Biology applies design principles where evolution used to reign. But are there Limits of Design? This was discussed at a Public Panel (Schering Session "Science & Society") on June 23rd, 2014 at the Schader-Forum, Darmstadt.
Coping with City Shrinkage: A Global Issue
The shrinking city phenomenon is a multidimensional process, comprising cities, parts of cities or metropolitan areas that have experienced dramatic decline in their economic and social bases. An international comparative viewpoint is essential to the discussion since the urban phenomenon of shrinking can be perceived all over the world, albeit within different cultural and socio-economic settings.Mehr erfahren
Green Transformations in the Global South - Public Panel
The international and interdisciplinary research project “GreeTS: Green Transformations in the Global South” presented its findings on the implementation and driving forces behind the changes in energy and land-use policy in the Global South as well as its implications for industrialized countries at a public panel at the Schader-Forum in Darmstadt on the 17th of January 2019.Mehr erfahren
Coping with City Shrinkage: Lessons from Germany
Only a few years ago, “shrinkage” was a political taboo in Europe and systematically disregarded as a dominant development trend in specific areas. This was also true for East Germany, despite the obvious development marked by a continued population loss and rising housing vacancies. “Shrinkage” was considered to be not policy compliant within the administrative system, traditionally oriented towards growth objectives. But the situation has changed significantly since the early 2000s. The term “shrinkage” resounded throughout the land, and today innumerable activities and events in Germany deal with the issue.Mehr erfahren
Handbook of Energy Governance in Europe
Prof. Dr. Michèle Knodt and Dr. Jörg Kemmerzell from the institute of political science at the Technische Universität Darmstadt will examine the Energy Governance in European countries within the context of European and international developments in a workshop. Therefore, the authors debate national trajectories of energy policy and examine the instruments, coordination mechanisms and adoption of external influences of national energy sectors.
Workshop: Responsible Research and Innovation in Synthetic Biology
What is required for responsible research and innovation (RRI) in the field of Synthetic Biology? The Workshop discussed topics, questions, models and issues within four major themes: Value sensitive design, Conditions for Co-Responsibility, Responsible Representation as well as Monitoring and Regulation.Mehr erfahren
Coping with City Shrinkage: Tackling Urban Decline
The international comparison of shrinking cities showed similar effects of shrinkage on cities as well as their local people, despite of different cultural and socio-economic settings. But which is a promising strategy to stop the process of shrinkage?Mehr erfahren
Science, Technology and the State: Implications for Governance of Synthetic Biology and Emerging Technologies
While the technology of synthetic biology could solve pressing environmental and health issues, concerns about ecological, security or socio-economic risks were raised. The emergence of innovation and safety cultures is required to foster new opportunities and to responsibly govern potential transformations linked to emerging technologies.

Anti-Poverty Policies in Britain
There is a long history of area-based policies in Britain. Since the election of the New Labour Government in 1997, the scale of area-based initiatives has increased and they have taken on more of an anti-poverty focus. The government has set ambitious goals to eradicate child poverty and social exclusion, including improving conditions in the poorest neighbourhoods so that within 10-20 years no one should be disadvantaged by where they live.
