Prof. Assist. Dr. Tom Bauler, ecological economist, holds the Chair on “Environment & Economy” at Université Libre de Bruxelles (ULB). He is also visiting research fellow at Harvard University (USA). Tom is exploring the role of policy instruments and tools in the environmental policy domain. Emphasis is given to questions relating to the place, insertion, use and impact of policy instruments and tools (e.g. indicators, scenario exercises). Since 2007, he is exploring the significance of ‘Transition Management’approaches as overarching policy processes for Low-carbon societies. He has been leading recently in the InContext project the workpackage on stocktaking of literature and case studies on “alternative consumption collectives”, with an emphasis on integrating case study knowledge across a number of EU-member countries.
