Ms. Feichtinger studied Landscape Architecture and Planning in Austria and Sweden, her studies focused mainly on environmental management, sustainable development and governance processes. Between 2004 and 2007, she worked for ZSI as research fellow in projects referring to environmental policies and sustainable development. Judith Feichtinger received her PhD within the framework of the Doctoral School for Sustainable Development at the University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences (BOKU, 2007-2010). The dissertation focused on governance and changes in water management through the implementation of the EU-water framework directive. After the doctoral school Judith Feichtinger has worked as university assistant and lecturer at the Institute of Forest, Environmental and Natural Resource Policy. She lectured “conflict management and participation” in the context of environmental conflicts and supervised interdisciplinary research projects mainly focusing on water and climate politics (conducted from environmental and bio-resources-management students). In 2016, she returned to ZSI and implements projects related to climate change, bio-economy and environmental policies.
