Nicholas Lefevre, Woodrow Wilson School


Nicolas' research interest was the politics of technological change in the scope of climate change mitigation. In particular, he was interested in political resistance resulting from foreseen economic hardships at the industry level. His research focuses on how such resistance can be assessed, predicted and integrated into more conventional economic models of climate change mitigation.
