Kirill’s research looks at how interest groups influence policy adaptation to social-ecological change. He explores this issue through linking the case of EU Common Fisheries Policy and agent-based modelling. To conceptualize political change in social-ecological systems, Kirill applies public policy frameworks, such as Advocacy Coalitions Framework and Multiple Streams.

In the case of Common Fisheries Policy, Kirill studies the role of interest groups in the adoption of the recent (2014) reform. Particularly he is interested in the mechanism through which interest groups achieved influence on the final reform outcome, and in their contribution to the flows of social-ecological information during the reform process. The information obtained through the case analysis is used in designing an agent-based model of coevolution between policy and social-ecological change (COPSE). Kirill’s work on COPSE model is done in collaboration with Andreas Duit from the department of political science, Stockholm University.

Kirill also co-supervises a Master student at SRC, together with Maja Schlüter and Per Olsson.

Kirill holds a MSc in International Administration and Global Governance from the University of Gothenburg. His Master research focused on decentralization in biodiversity governance and the role democratic institutions play in the process of power sharing in natural resource management. Kirill also has a MSc in International Economic Relations from V. N. Karazin Kharkiv National University, Ukraine.
