The Governance and Sustainability Lab welcomed Dr. Gerald Taylor Aiken during the weekly colloquium. Dr. Gerald Aiken is a PostDoc researcher at the Institute of Geography and Spatial Planning, Identités. Politiques, Sociétés, Espaces (IPSE), University of Luxembourg. Before joining the University of Luxembourg Dr. Taylor Aiken did his PhD at Durham University on “The Production, Practice, and Potential of ‘Community’ in Edinburgh’s Transition Town Network" (2014). During the colloquium Dr. Taylor Aiken introduced his current research interests and his work on the role of community in the transition to low carbon futures. The introduction was followed by a lively debate on mechanisms of crowding out, the meaning and conceptualization of ‘community’ and the production of knowledge across the Global North and South. The colloquium was an opportunity to get to know on-going research in the University of Luxembourg and foster regional collaboration and exchange.
