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);
  • Climate Change policy and politics in comparative perspective; and
  • Europeanization of political systems, esp. national parliaments.
