Department of Development Studies
SOAS, University of London
Convenors: Professor Rosaleen Duffy and Professor Peter Mollinga
This programme uses a critical political ecology frame and examines environmental policy and its intersections with development from a social justice angle. It is taught and convened by leading political ecologists and offers a critical analysis of key issues including water, climate, fisheries, forests, agricultural production, biodiversity, conflicts and energy supply.
The Masters asks important questions including:
§ Can we govern the commons?
§ How does the environment intersect with global poverty, wealth and questions of inequality?
§ Can carbon trading offer a solution to managing climate change?
§ How does access to water intersect with dynamics of wealth and poverty?
§ Is wildlife conservation implicated in social injustices?
§ What role can and do environmental movements play in development?
§ Is there a link between environmental change and violent conflict?
§ What are the political ecologies of forests?
