The challenges and opportunities of the governance of food waste- the case of Denmark

Project: Research

Project Details


This pilot project investigates the challenges and complexity in the coordination among the various public and private actors who are involved in the governance of the emerging regulatory framework of circular economy. In order to identify the challenges and opportunities that this may entail from the EU to the national level, the project focuses on two municipalities in Denmark that are used as explanatory case studies (e.g Lejre and Bornholm).
