Research interests

Maryna Henryssons’ research has been concerned with sustainability governance and focused on three key themes. First, theorizing and explaining the processes and practices of governing low-carbon transformation. Her work in this area has focused on the politics of climate change mitigation and transformation of electricity infrastructure in Vietnam and Mexico. Second, the theme of politics of international knowledge regimes and the roles of institutions in development of national climate change mitigation policies, explored in particular in the buildings sector in Vietnam. Third, the role of non-state actors in climate governance, in particular work centered on the role of international donors and carbon markets.
