Geraldine Pflieger is the Director of the Institute of Environmental Science at the University of Geneva. Her research work included the governance of common resources (mainly water and land) – at the international, regional and local scales – and the transformation of the government of metropolises facing great infrastructural and environmental challenges (for example, issues of coordination between transport and land use or between urbanization and the use of natural resources). Her two main teaching fields are the environment and international relations and urban policies.
A Doctor of the Ecole Nationale des Ponts et Chaussées (Laboratory Techniques, Territories, Societies, LATTS), Geraldine was a visiting scholar at the University of California, Berkeley in 2002 (Institute of Governmental Studies, IGS), a Senior researcher at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, Lausanne, from 2003 to 2008, and an Assistant Professor at the University of Lausanne (Institute of Political and International Studies) from 2008 to 2009.
