Döbbe, Friederike

Affiliated PhD Student
Mistra Center for Sustainable Markets
Friederike is a PhD Candidate at the Department of Management and Organization (DMO). She is also affiliated with the Mistra Center for Sustainable Markets (Misum) at SSE.

Friederike is an organization scholar with research interests at the intersection of business, politics, and the environment. In her PhD, she studies the politics of responsibilization in the context of climate change and sustainable food, i.e., how responsibility is attributed but also re-directed and deferred.

She conducts qualitative research draws largely from discursive approaches that emphasize how responses to climate and environmental issues are shaped by interests and power. Two specific interests are consumer responsibilization and responsibilization in the context of global governance.

Friederike holds a MSc in Environmental Policy & Regulation from the London School of Economics and Political Sciences (LSE) as well as a bachelor degree in Corporate Management & Economics from Zeppelin University in Germany. Her studies included a semester abroad at Universitat Pompeu Fabra in Barcelona and a research stay at Copenhagen Business School. Before joining SSE, she worked amongst others for the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) in Geneva.

Moreover, Friederike is also a co-founder of The Methods Lab at SSE, organizing so-called "Methods Clinics" with guest speakers on a regular basis.
