Judith Gollata


As a political scientist I am currently working as a PhD scholar on issues of environmental policy implementation in multi-level governance systems. I am particularly interested in the local management of environmental planning processes with a focus on air and water. I obtained my M.A degree in International Relations from the Department of War Studies, King’s College London and my B.A. in Social Sciences from Humboldt-University Berlin.
