Dr. Alice Vadrot
Alice Vadrot is Assistant Professor for International Relations with a focus on Environmental Politics at the Department of Political Science of the University of Vienna and Visiting Research Fellow at the Centre for Science and Policy of the University of Cambridge.
She is a political scientist and the principal investigator of the ERC funded project MARIPOLDATA.
Vadrot holds a PhD from the University of Vienna, which she completed in 2013. From 2015 to 2017, she was a Visiting Research Fellow at the Centre for Science and Policy of the University of Cambridge and Erwin Schrödinger Fellow of the Austrian Science Fund. Her work addresses the role of knowledge and science in global environmental politics and policies. She has conducted extensive research on the Intergovernmental Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES) and developed the concept of “epistemic selectivities”, which she uses to describe and understand the processes that lead to epistemic authority, legitimacy and scientific and political self-evidence in global environmental politics. Vadrot is the author of “The Politics of Knowledge and Global Biodiversity” (Routledge, 2014) and editor of several special issues, research articles and editorials.
Since spring 2019, Alice Vadrot is Research Fellow at the Earth System Governance Research platform.
