Research is mainly conducted in Southeast Asia at a conceptual and methodological level, and in Central Asia, East Africa and the Swiss Alps in a more applied perspective.Research Themes1) Space, spheres and levels in the development-environment nexus2) Resources and livelihoods in center-periphery perspective3) Linking regional development and sustainable resource management
