  • 1st  International Forest Policy Meeting; Hann. Münden, Germany; 16-18 March 2016. The 1st  International Forest Policy Meeting was held  in Hann. Münden from March 16-18 2016 as a part of the activities of IUFRO Group 9.05 on „Forest Policy and Governance“. In an international, workshop-like, scholarly conference format it brought together some 60 forest policy scientists from  15 European countries. Organised by Dr. Lukas Giessen, Prof. Max Krott (both University of Göttingen/Germany) and Dr. Vilis Brukas (SLU/Sweden), the event marked an important development in academic forest policy networking, because it merged two established research networks, i.e. the almost 50-year-old “Forstpolitiktreffen” and the Nordic Network on Forest Policy Science. From now on International Forest Policy Meetings will be convened as a recurring event every other year, especially for providing young researchers a critical platform for presenting and discussing their research.  The presentations held at the 2016 meeting can be found at The most promising papers presented at the meeting were invited for a special issue of Forest Policy and Economics.
