Sune Wiingaard Stoustrup
Since October 2017 Sune W. Stoustrup has joined the IRS in the department of “Dynamics of Communication, Knowledge and Spatial Development” as a doctoral student as part of the project “RurAction: Social Entrepreneurship in Structurally Weak Rural Regions – Analysing Innovative Troubleshooters in Action”.
He is B.Sc. in Planning Studies and Communication Studies from Roskilde University and M.A. from the 4CITIES Master Programme in Urban Studies (jointly organised by Vrije Universiteit Brussel, Université Libre de Bruxelles, Universität Wien, Copenhagen University, Universidad Autónoma de Madrid and Universidad Complutense de Madrid).
He graduated his M.A. based on his thesis: “European Spatial Planning - From Policy to Project
in Budapest and Vienna”, where he analysed the implementation and consequences of EU co-financing of urban projects in Vienna and Budapest.
For his research at the IRS he will be analysing discourses on regional problems, as they are represented by narrations and media as well as the knowledge patterns they produce. The study will be a comparative study of the three regions Mid-West (IE), Uckermark (DE) and Mühlviertel (AT), and as part of this he will be seconded to local institutions in these places (Ballyhoura development, IE, Social Impact, DE, and OTELO, AT).
