Abstract

The role and design of global expert organizations such as the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) or the Intergovernmental Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES) needs rethinking. Acknowledging that a one-size-fits- All model does not exist, we suggest a reflexive turn that implies treating the governance of expertise as a matter of political contestation.
