Title: Research Fellow
Expertise: natural resource management
Rasmus Kløcker Larsen is a Research Fellow at SEI Stockholm. He joined SEI in September 2006. Rasmus is committed to supporting people, who hold competing claims on natural resources, to respond more dialogically to each other and the intractable dilemmas that they face.
He has specialized in fostering action learning inquiries into governance dilemmas linked to water resources, agro-forestry, and extractive industries. Activities range from community-based impact assessment, through process design and leadership in stakeholder dialogues, to review of the coherence and implementability of policies. His work is principally inspired by participatory action research and critical systemic thinking, striving to improve governance praxis through co-engagement with stakeholders in concrete tasks.
Rasmus holds a PhD from Wageningen University and MSc. degrees from Oxford University and Copenhagen University and has close to ten years of professional experience in research, development, education and capacity building projects, principally in South East Asia and Scandinavia. He has acted as lead or co-applicant in international and multi-institutional projects funded with about 35 million SEK and published over 20 articles in international peer-reviewed journals and books.
