Nora Hein

I am a student in the master's programme Organic Agricultural Systems and Agroecology at BOKU University in Vienna where I have previously obtained a master’s degree in Environment and Bio-Resources Management. In the course of my training, I have come to appreciate what I believe are vital contributions that inter- and transdisciplinary perspectives can offer to better understand and shape the role of food and farming systems in sustainability transitions.

For my master thesis research, I studied elements of Positive Peace in recurring resource conflicts between agricultural communities in rural Kenya. 

My current research collaboration brings together justifications for vegan food choices and structures that support or impede transitioning to veganism in DACH geographical region, with empirical data suggesting substantial demand for the recognition of more-than-human perspectives in analysing non-animal-based food systems.

At KLI, I work as a research assistant in the EU project PLUS Change, which uses a transdisciplinary perspective to investigate land use strategies and decision-making processes to address social, climate and biodiversity objectives.
