Welcome!

PD Dr. Frank Wendler

I am a political scientist at the University of Hamburg (Germany) and member of its Center for Sustainable Society Research (CSS).

Since 1 May 2020, I lead the research project “How Ideas Frame the Politics of Climate Change” (funded by the German Science Foundation DFG).

In my research, I concentrate on the following topics:

  • Governance in Multi-Level Systems (esp. the European Union);
  • Europeanization of national politics (esp. parliaments); and
  • Climate Change Policy in comparative perspective.
