Professional biography

I am Professor of Environmental Policy in the Geography Department of the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences.

I landed at the Open University in 1995 after working in accounts and as a merchant seaman. During a two year career break in the 1980s I travelled extensively, developing a concern about global environmental degradation along the way. This eventually led to a PhD in international forest politics at City University London and to my current research in global environmental governance, politics and policy.

I have served as an advisor to the World Commission on Forests and Sustainable Development, as a member of the Scientific Advisory Board of the European Forest Institute and with various UK government delegations to the United Nations Forum on Forests (UNFF). I have been a UK representative on two EU-funded research programmes: COST Action E19 on ‘National Forest Programmes in a European Context’; and COST Action FP1207 on ‘Orchestrating forest policy analysis in Europe’. I was a member of the International Union of Forest Research Organisations (IUFRO) Global Forest Expert Panel on the international forest regime and of the IUFRO Task Force on International Forest Governance, and am currently working with the IUFRO Working Group on Forest Policy Learning Architecture and Governance. In 2011 I was a member of the Development Partnerships in Higher Education (DelPHE) team on academic capacity building in Afghanistan supported by the British Council and Department for International Development.

I have guest edited special issues of five peer-reviewed journals: Forest Policy and Economics (2002, with Peter Glück); Global Environmental Politics (2003, with Matthew Paterson and Lloyd Pettiford); Journal of Integrative Environmental Sciences (2009); Environmental Science and Policy (2014, with Marleen Buizer and Wil de Jong); and Forest Policy and Economics (2017, with Shonil Bhagwat). I am a member of the editorial board of Forest Policy and Economics and of the advisory board of Common Ground’s Global Studies knowledge community.

In 2015 I was appointed lead editor of Common Ground’s On Sustainability collection of academic journals, and academic lead for the annual International Conference on Environmental, Cultural, Economic and Social Sustainability. You can find out about the next conference in Cairns, Australia in January 2018 here, including details of how to register.

Research interests

My current research interests centre on five interrelated areas at the interface of geography, environmental politics and international studies. The first is global environmental governance, with a particular interest in the United Nations Forum on Forests and other forest-related international organisations, including the Framework Convention on Climate Change and the UN REDD+ mechanism. Research in this area also focuses on private sector governance schemes in shaping norms and rules, the interactions between public and private spheres in environmental governance, and the democratic regulation of business corporations. The second is environmental philosophy and environmental law, and in particular the role that different rights claims play in shaping environmental politics and domestic and international law, with an interest in the moral claim that nature has rights that precede those of humans. The third is the relationship between science, technology and politics with particular interests in two areas: forest science, and geoengineering. The fourth is research into national forest policy in the United Kingdom within the context of pan-European forest policy. The fifth is the relationship between ideas on sustainability and heritage, both environmental heritage and urban heritage. A common theme to all areas of research is the relationship between theory and practice and how research can inform the work of external user groups to generate durable governance.

I welcome applications from prospective PhD students interested in all areas of environmental geography, environmental policy and environmental politics.

I'm a member of the OpenSpace Research Centre.
