Dr. Farhad Mukhtarov is Assistant Professor of Governance and Public Policy at International Institute of Social Sciences (ISS), Erasmus University Rotterdam. Dr. Mukhtarov is specialised in environmental and water governance and is particularly fascinated by the politics of knowledge, problem framing, knowledge pluralism, and the role of context in shaping policy. In his Ph.D. research, Dr. Mukhtarov examined how a powerful global discourse on Integrated Water Resources Management had been actively promoted internationally and how it had translated into national and local policy arenas in England, Turkey and Kazakhstan.

Dr. Farhad Mukhtarov is Assistant Professor of Governance and Public Policy at International Institute of Social Sciences (ISS), Erasmus University Rotterdam. Dr. Mukhtarov is specialised in environmental and water governance and is particularly fascinated by the politics of knowledge, problem framing, knowledge pluralism, and the role of context in shaping policy. In his Ph.D. research, Dr. Mukhtarov examined how a powerful global discourse on Integrated Water Resources Management had been actively promoted internationally and how it had translated into national and local policy arenas in England, Turkey and Kazakhstan. Subsequently, Dr. Mukhtarov developed interest in understanding and steering the travel of (water) policy models across various boundaries (e.g. organisational, disciplinary, cultural and nation-states) - the major leitmotif of his research. 

In addition, Dr. Mukhtarov researched nature conservation policy in Vietnam, setting up of water user associations in Azerbaijan, Turkey and Kazakhstan, and development of global discourses on water governance. His latest project, in the context of a large European Union funded Horizon 2020 project, investigated collaborative learning in the context of flood risk management in Leicester (United Kingdom), water conservation in Milton Keynes (United Kingdom), water reuse in Sabadell (Spain), and community gardening in Jerusalem.

Farhad is also an Adjunct Senior Research Fellow at the Institute of Water Policy at National University of Singapore. Dr. Mukhtarov held faculty and (visiting) research appointments at the University of Oxford, Utrecht University, Delft University of Technology, Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, and ADA University. His Ph.D. is from Central European University (magna cum laude, 2009) and MSc. is from Manchester University and Central European University, both degrees are in Environmental Sciences and Policy. He regularly blogs at www.policytranslation.eu.

Farhad's latest research is available at Researchgate.
