Rasmus Kløcker Larsen is a Research Fellow at Stockholm Environment Institute. His research focuses broadly on the ethics, practices and politics associated with contested land and resource decisions, with emphasis on how various forms of dialogue contribute towards reconciliation between local and indigenous communities, developers and the state.
Rasmus is frequently engaged as facilitator in stakeholder processes and policy events and as advisor to government and local and indigenous communities. He has published extensively in international peer-reviewed journals and has a track-record of leadership in international and multi-institutional projects. He also regularly contributes in media, as speaker in scientific conferences, and as lecturer in advanced PhD and MSc. level university courses.
Rasmus’ current projects focus on impact assessments and the cumulative effects of competing land uses on Sami reindeer herding. He has earlier worked on governance of water resources, rural development and agro-industry in Southeast Asia. Prior to joining SEI in 2006 Rasmus held a position as Assistant Lecturer at the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences in Uppsala.
He holds a PhD in innovation and communication studies from Wageningen University and MSc. degrees from both Oxford University and Copenhagen University.
