Three Scholars appointed to ESG Lead Faculty

We are thrilled to share that three distinguished scholars have been invited and accepted an invitation to join the Earth System Governance Lead Faculty. The Earth System Governance Lead Faculty is a small group of scientists of the highest international reputation who take (shared) responsibility for the development of research on particular analytical problems or cross-cutting themes. Members are invited by the Scientific Steering Committee taking into account academic criteria while striving for a geographical, disciplinary, and gender balance. We welcome Susan Park (Sydney Environmental Institute), Cristina Inoue (Radbound University), and Maarten Hajer (Utrecht University).

Susan Park is a Professor in International Relations at the University of Sydney. She is an associate editor of the journal Global Environmental Politics and is co-convenor of the Earth Systems Governance (ESG) Task Force ‘Accountability in Global Environmental Governance.’

Cristina Inoue is a Professor at the Environmental Governance and Politics Chair Group, Department of Geography, Planning and Environment, Nijmegen School of Management, Radboud University, co-coordinator of the Radboud Centre for Sustainability Challenges and senior researcher at the Center for Global Studies/Institute of International Relations, University of Brasília, Brazil.

Maarten A. Hajer is distinguished professor Urban Futures and Director of the Urban Futures Studio at Utrecht University. Maarten is also the Scientific Director of the university-wide strategic theme ‘Pathways to Sustainability’ at UU and the lead author of its new programme, ‘The Way Forward’ (2021).
