Heike Schroeder

Faculty

Heike Schroeder is Professor of Environmental Governance at the School of International Development, University of East Anglia. Her work focuses on global environmental politics, forest governance and REDD+, the role of non-nation state actors in the current post-2012 negotiating process and urban climate governance. She is also a member of the Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research and the the long-term international research project on Earth System Governance. Heike was a senior fellow at the Institute for Advanced Sustainability Studies (IASS) in Potsdam in 2019.

From 2007 to 2011, Heike was a Tyndall senior research fellow and an Oxford Martin senior fellow in forest governance at the Environmental Change Institute, University of Oxford. From 2003 to 2007, she was a researcher at the Bren School of Environmental Science and Management, University of California, Santa Barbara, as well as the Executive Officer of a 10-year international research project on the Institutional Dimensions of Global Environmental Change (IDGEC), a core project of the International Human Dimensions Programme on Global Environmental Change (IHDP). The IDGEC project examined the roles institutions play in the human/environment interface. The project’s findings are documented in the book Institutions and Environmental Change, edited by Young, King, and Schroeder (MIT Press).
