About Ylva Uggla


Ylva Uggla’s research focuses on regulation and management of environmental risks. Central questions concern the relation between politics and science, and the handling of uncertainty in decision-making. She has studied these and related issues in several empirical fields, including hazardous waste disposal, climate change adaptation and mitigation, and biodiversity preservation. Ylva Uggla has also conducted research on urban planning and how urban greenery is constructed in relation to the city.

Current research concerns:

Individualization of environmental responsibility, including analysis of political and public communication on climate change.

Environmental representation. The project concerns both those who in various ways represent (“acting for”) the environment and how various images, graphs and symbols represent (“standing for”) the environment and/or environmental problems.
