PhD defence: Rikke Sigmer Nielsen (IFRO)

Ph.d.-forsvar — The findings of Rikke Sigmer Nielsen's thesis challenges the dominant theoretical view of (eco-)guilt as adaptive, and (eco-)shame as maladaptive. Instead her thesis highlights that, under certain conditions, both emotions hold a pro-environmental and moral potential, not only at the individual level, but also at the structural level.
