Anke Kläver has been working as a researcher at the Institute for Advanced Sustainability Studies (IASS) in Potsdam since 2020, where she used to be a student assistant. As a member of the interdisciplinary EXPERI team, she is doing her PhD on social sustainability in the mobility transition.
Before working at the IASS, Anke Kläver studied Political Economics at Hochschule für Wirtschaft und Recht Berlin. In her master’s thesis, she analysed the inertia of fossil automobility in order to understand their current hegemony. Before that, she earned her bachelor’s degree in Environmental Science and Economics at Leuphana University, Lüneburg. Her dissertation, focussing on deliberative methods of evaluating climate adaptation measures in urban spaces, was part of her work at the Institut für ökologische Wirtschaftsforschung (Institute for Ecological Economic Research). Anke Kläver is driven by questions of individual and collective scope for shaping a just social-ecological transition vis-à-vis systems of power, both within as well as beyond her studies.
