Katarina Larsen interviewed in Guapi, Colombia

Katarina Larsen, researcher at the division, has recently been on a field trip to Colombia. While being in Guapi, a fishing town on the westcoast of the country, Katarina was interviewed by the Facultad de Minas de la Universidad Nacional de Colombia about the work of the Swedish delegation of the Econavipesca project (Sida funded) on-site. According to delegation member and KTH-student Gauri Salunkhe “The project aims to empower and uplift fishing communities in the municipality of Guapi by developing and implementing more sustainable artisanal fishing practices throughout the value chain.” Co-creation between locals and researchers as well as the role of women for change were prominent topics discussed both during the visit and in the interview.

Katarina Larsen
Working as a doctoral student in the Nuclearwaters-Project (ERC Consolidator Grant, PI Per Högselius), I focus on the nuclear history of Eastern Europe, especially on the territory of the former Soviet Union and its successor states. Furthermore, I investigate expert cultures in nuclear discourses, with a special interest in water-related issues in nuclear power plant decision-making. In addition, I am intrigued by the entanglement of the commercial, scientific and political interests concerning nuclear technologies, with its sometimes harsh consequences on human societies and the environment. Recently this interest has extended to energy systems as a whole in Eastern Europe, including fossil fuels and renewables. Questions of transition within international energy systems in the face of the climate crisis and recent political developments become more important, as my work progresses.
