Ivo Wallimann-Helmer is a guest senior research scholar in the Equity and Justice Research Group of the IIASA Population and Just Societies Program where he investigates the conceptual and normative issues of justice in climate action and environmental protection, technological innovation for sustainability, and the fair differentiation of responsibilities in environmental practice and food systems. His key interests concern the conceptual conflicts between the global and intergenerational dimensions of these challenges and the local and temporal differentiations of responsibilities between relevant agents.
