Franziska Christina Paul is Research Associate in Global Remunicipalisation in the Adam Smith Business School.
Franziska holds a PhD in Geography from the University of Glasgow. Funded through the Economic and Social Research Council, the project explored trade union politics and movement building around climate change and energy transition. Prior to the PhD, she 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).
Franziska currently works on a European Research Council grant titled “Global Remuncipalisation and the Post-Neoliberal Turn” (2019-2023). The project critically interrogates the growing phenomenon of remunicipalisation and its implications for an emerging post-neoliberal urbanism.
