Since November 2016, Sophie Peter has been a Junior Researcher at the ISÖ-Institute for Social Ecology. Last year, she completed her M.Sc. In Environmental Sciences, Policy and Management (MESPOM). It includes research stays at the Central European University (CEU) in Hungary, the University of the Aegean in Greece, and a stay at the International Institute for Industrial Environmental Economics (IIIEE) at Lund University in Sweden. The focus was on social sustainability, sustainability strategies in the public and private sectors, recycling, renewable energy technologies and policies. She wrote her master´s thesis in cooperation with the Wuppertal Institute about how to measure the societal impact of sustainability projects.

She completed her bachelor’s degree in Political Science and Sociology at the University of Mannheim, focusing on qualitative and quantitative methods, political sociology and international / European relations in 2013. Her bachelor´s thesis deals with the “green” energy policy for Europe and how a lack of coherence inhibits sustainable development in EU policy. Between Bachelor´s and Master´s program, she completed two internships at the Independent Institute for Environmental Research (UfU e.V.) in Berlin and at the Stockholm Environment Institute (SEI) in the project WASH & RESCUE. In 2014, she attended the Summer University of the University of Geneva on “Global Environment, Energy and Risk”. Sophie Peter was born 1990 in Aschaffenburg.
