Kristoffer Ekberg is an Associate Senior Lecturer at the division of Human Ecology at Lund University and is an historian focusing on environmental history, political history and social movements. His research explores what kind of knowledge about climate change that has historically existed within industry, the scientific community and the political sphere. The aim is to map out the dissemination of knowledge in Sweden and to give a better understanding the political struggles involved when new issues enter the political sphere. Currently he is developing a study of environmental- and climate policy from Swedish neo-liberal think tanks from the 1980s until today.
