CV

Dr. Stephan Bohn is a guest researcher at the WZB from October 2016. He is currently working on a project about the institutional complexity of the energiewende. Using the case of the German energy transition, the project is questioning how energy companies frame the German energy transition and topics like atomic phase-out and climate protection. Further on, the negotiation processes between energy companies, political parties and NGOs to the meaning and the content of the energy transition will be investigated (frame struggle).
