His current projects are:

Progressive governing in times of crises: The Russian invasion of Ukraine in February 2022 was a watershed moment for Germany with far-reaching policy shifts for its foreign, security and energy policy. All governing parties of the so-called traffic-light coalition had to give up long-standing positions. This project looks at what role the German Greens are playing in the coalition government, how they are coping in implementing their progressive agenda and how joining the government has impacted their intraparty power structure.

Coalition governments: Governing Ecologically (DE) analyzes how the Germans Greens performed in implementing policies for an ecological modernization. It’s building upon its predecessor German Greens in Coalition Governments (DE), which addresses at the Green Party’s governing experience on Germany’s state level and its impact on federal policy-making.

Nuclear waste: No country worldwide to date has developed a functioning waste management strategy for all kinds of nuclear waste, including a final repository. This is a key finding of the World Nuclear Waste Report, which Arne supported as coordinator and lead editor.

The Energiewende: Energy Democracy: Germany’s Energiewende to Renewables argues that an active role for citizens in the energy transition helps revitalizing communities and strengthening democracy. Citizen energy works an antidote to rising populism.
