His current projects are:

Elections in Germany: Germany is coming out of a super election year. Angela Merkel’s departure marks the end of an era. The incoming traffic-light coalition is to pursue a progressive reform agenda. With the Greens in charge of energy and climate matters, what are the prospects for Germany to return as a climate frontrunner?

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.
