Prof. dr. Flor Avelino

Organisations and Sustainability

Flor Avelino has been working as a researcher and lecturer in sustainability transitions and transformative social innovation since 2005. With a background in political science, she specialises in power theories and has a particular interest in understanding how people, organisations and networks are (dis)empowered to contribute to change and how power relations are being challenged and reproduced through translocal processes of social innovation and sustainability transitions.

She is currently a full professor of Organisations & Sustainability at the Copernicus Institute of Sustainable Development at Utrecht University. Previously, she worked at the Dutch Research Institute for Transitions (DRIFT) as senior researcher and lecturer in the politics of sustainability transitions and social innovation, and as associate professor at the Department of Public Administration & Sociology (DPAS) at the Erasmus School of Social & Behavioural Sciences (ESSB, Erasmus University of Rotterdam).
