University of Exeter


Lorien Jasny is a lecturer in Politics at the University of Exeter. Her work focuses on questions of public involvement and engagement in environmental decision making. Her research agenda focuses on two related themes: how the structure and dynamics of inter-organizational networks affect policy change, and how the structure and dynamics of belief networks affect behavioral change. Substantively, she studies how people try to bring about societal change in response to political and environmental concerns. Methodologically, the need to grapple with these often complex phenomena requires the use and development of techniques for handling large, dynamic, and relational datasets
