Between the 28th of October and the 6th of November 2015, the Institute of Environmental Systems Research (IUSF) and The Integrated Assessment  Society (TIAS) organized the Autumn School “Concepts, frameworks and methods for the comparative analysis of water governance”. The Autumn School’s key objectives were to stimulate the development of knowledge and insights into comparative water governance research and to provide support to young researchers in developing their careers. The event was attended by 23 PhD and postdoctoral researchers and 8 session leaders with diverse disciplinary and socio-cultural backgrounds with an interest in comparative water governance research. The event took place at the JUFA Jülich Energiewelt Indeland im Brückenkopf-Park in Jülich, Germany and was sponsored by the Volkswagen Foundation.
