About me

Hannes Stephan completed his PhD at Keele University in 2009 (on the cultural politics of genetically modified organisms). 

Since then, he worked as a research fellow at Keele University and at Lund University, Sweden, joining the University of Stirling in 2012. He teaches three undergraduate environment-related modules, a postgraduate module on resource conflicts, and conducts research on environmental politics and energy politics/policy. 

His current research examines low-carbon energy transitions through the lenses of energy security, energy justice, narrative politics/policy, and discourse coalitions, with a particular focus on unconventional gas extraction (shale gas). 

He was a co-convenor of the Environmental Standing Group of the European Consortium for Political Research (ECPR) between 2011 and 2019.
