Biography

Franziska Christina Paul is a Research Associate in the Adam Smith Business School.

Franziska currently works on a European Research Council grant titled “Global Remunicipalisation and the Post-Neoliberal Turn” (2019-2024). The project critically interrogates the growing phenomenon of remunicipalisation and its implications for an emerging post-neoliberal urbanism.

Franziska holds a PhD in Geography from the University of Glasgow (2015-2019) which is titled ‘“Resist! Reclaim! Restructure!”: The Struggle for Trade Union Environmentalism and Energy Democracy’. The project was supervised by Dr David Featherstone and Professor Andrew Cumbers, and was funded by the Economic and Social Research Council.

Prior to the PhD, Franziska received a first-class MA in Geography and Sociology from the University of Aberdeen (2010-2014) and graduated with distinction from the MRes in Human Geography at the University of Glasgow (2014-2015).
