Skrócony biogram

I am particularly interested in ambiguity and ambivalence towards nature and environmental protection and how they influence to the conflicts, rules of governance and social movements at local and national level. Based on this perspective, I have been investigating an emergence of conflicts over tree felling in Warsaw and public policy towards two charismatic species: moose and wolves.
