To what extent do state and non-state institutions influence the rise and legitimi­zation of political violence in the field of climate poli­tics?

In my research, I focus on political violence in the context of environ­mental and climate politics and I examine the forms and mechanisms of environ­mental conflict. I am particularly interested in the inter­actions between activists, state and non-state re­pressive institutions and how these in­fluence the increase and legiti­mation of political violence.
