You will join the Environmental Governance and Politics (EGP) Chair group at the Nijmegen School of Management
. The chair group is a social scientific team of researchers that aim to critically reflect on and contribute to sustainability transformations. The group develops useful insights into the why and how of such processes, which can serve to enable, accelerate, deepen and broaden the transformation towards a global sustainable society. To this end, they often engage in research, teaching and collaboration with societal partners. EGP is specialised in the relations between agriculture, animal, biodiversity, circular economy, climate change, energy, and freshwater governance. Theoretically, we mainly use discursive, institutional, and practice-based perspectives. The Nijmegen School of Management enables students, institutions and companies, societal actors and governments to play their part in a transformation towards sustainable societies. In doing so, the faculty is committed to Radboud University’s mission of contributing to a healthy, free world with equal opportunities for all. In the context of our mission 'Responsible governance for sustainable societies', we address scientific and societal challenges from a good governance perspective. Our work focuses on the topics Beyond Economy, Climate, Inclusivity, Safety, and Democracy. By building, questioning and extending the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs), we acknowledge their interrelatedness and focus on a number of grand challenges within society. At Nijmegen School of Management, academic research and teaching are carried out in challenging educational programmes. These programmes are offered in the areas of Business Administration, Economics and Business Economics, Geography, Planning and Environment
, Political Science and Public Administration. Academic research takes place within the Institute for Management Research (IMR). The Nijmegen School of Management currently has some 5,000 students and 350 FTE staff.
We want to get the best out of science, others and ourselves. Why? Because this is what the world around us desperately needs. Leading research and education make an indispensable contribution to a healthy, free world with equal opportunities for all. This is what unites the more than 24,000 students and 5,600 employees at Radboud University. And this requires even more talent, collaboration and lifelong learning. You have a part to play!
