Antto Vihma works as a Research Professor at FIIA. He is the PI in an Academy of Finland funded project TRANSCLIM (2020–2024), which studies transparency in global climate governance.

His research has centered on climate politics, policy analysis, and political theory. He has approached climate change in a multidisciplinary way, combining the research traditions of International Relations (IR) and international law. In addition, Vihma has engaged in case studies, including several in the Global South. The results have been published in leading international peer-reviewed journals such as International Affairs, Geopolitics, and Global Environmental Politics. Vihma has also published a number of articles intended for professional communities and the general public, as well as several research reports and policy briefings to inform policymakers, some with concrete policy recommendations. In 2012-2016, he was writer/editor for the Earth Negotiations Bulletin (IISD).

Recently, Vihma has co-authored a monograph on post-truth politics (Totuuden jälkeen, in Finnish), which was shortlisted for the Kanava prize in 2018. His latest monograph, published in September 2021, tackles the contemporary politics of nostalgia (Nostalgia: Teoria ja käytäntö, in Finnish). Currently, Vihma is a columnist for Suomen Kuvalehti magazine.
