Andreas Duit works in the field of comparative environmental politics, with special focus on large-scale collective dilemmas, institutional theory and methodological questions. Duit wrote his dissertation on the evolution of Swedish institutions of environmental protection.

After receiving his PhD in 2002 he has worked with research on natural resource management within the Millennium Assessment Project at the Centre for Transdisciplinary Environmental Research (CTM), Stockholm University.

On behalf of governmental evaluations committees Duit has written reports on electoral campaign financing, the effects of electoral reforms, and immigrant voters. Furthermore, on behalf of MISTRA and the Swedish Research Council, Duit has written a report on political science and the sustainable society.

During 2004, Duit was a STINT-sponsored Visiting Scholar at the Workshop on Political Theory and Policy Analysis, Indiana University.

He is currently a project coordinator and researcher in the MISTRA-financed MAPLE-project, which studies environmental policy in a comparative perspective.

Beginning 2006, Duit is also coordinating the CTM-based project “Contested Species — An Interdisciplinary Approach for Understanding Conflict Dynamics in Wildlife Management", financed by FORMAS.
