Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

In this course, current examples from nature conservation and socio-ecological research are used to present and contrast relevant concepts, methods and guidelines for conservation issues at an international level. The focus is on "burning issues" from scientific and applied fields (e.g., agroecology, biodiversity management, conservation policy) in Europe and the tropics. The aim of the course is to present empirical perspectives from these areas, as well as to impart knowledge about differences in conservation-relevant, cultural and socio-economic frame conditions. This provides a practical overview of related concepts and guidelines, which can be used as a basis for the planning and implementation of research projects in an international, conservational context.
