Read about our many Research projects.
Aims and objectives
Members of the Society, Environment and Development cluster work in both the developed and developing world, sharing interests in institutions, governance and sustainability. Within the Cluster there are three broad, interrelated strands of research:
|Society & Environment||Political Ecology||Society & Development|
Environmental ethics, politics and policies in developed countries and in the international arena.
Politics, management and human ecology of natural resources in the developing world, especially forests, wildlife, grazing land and water.
Social contexts for human development and state-society relations, with research in Africa, South Asia and Latin America.
The cluster also includes an active group of PhD students.
Academic staff within the cluster welcome applications from prospective PhD students in their areas of research interest (see individual staff webpages, linked above).
Prospective Masters students are encouraged to apply for the MPhil in Geographical Research, where members of the cluster teach the Environment and Development option.
