Professor Björn-Ola Linnér
Björn-Ola Linnér is the Programme Director of Mistra Geopolitics and Professor at the Centre for Climate Science and Policy Research at Linköping University. He analyses how the political processes and actors affect conditions for social changes towards sustainable development in different parts of the world. He has a long experience in research dialogues with various societal actors, such as the climate convention’s secretariat, governments, businesses and environmental organizations.
Malaika is a PhD student at Linköping University. Her research focuses on how geopolitical changes might create opportunities or threats to the capacity of Pacific Small Island Developing States to cope with climate change, and how these changes spur transformation towards sustainable development. Drawing on Indigenous research methods and knowledge, her research will further look at how stakeholders in these countries make sense of environmental and political changes, and how these changes influence their efforts to achieve the SDGs.
