FWO Postdoctoral Grant

Mihnea Tanasescu received a postdoctoral grant (2014-2017) from the Fonds Wetenschappelijke Onderzoek (FWO) for his research project on 'rewilding Europe'.

This project aims to understand the political aspects of ecological restoration and rewilding projects. It specifically analyses rewilding policies in Romania, and compares and contrasts these with the long Dutch experience of fabricating nature. The aim is to both get a good grasp of the policies now developing and situate them within the wider history of  environmental thought.
