European support for the first network of research and training in political ecology
Date:4/30/2013

A group of eleven organisations, coordinated by the Institute of Environmental Science and Technology at the Universitat Autnoma de Barcelona (ICTA-UAB), will train 18 researchers in Political Ecology over the next three years, within the framework of the European project ENTITLE. The initiative aims to create an international network of expertise in the field and to build a stable collaboration on Doctoral studies that takes into account the multidisciplinary training needed in this area. Political ecology studies the social and political roots of conflicts over access and use of the environment.

12 pre-doctoral and 6 post-doctoral researchers have been awarded a Marie Curie Fellowship to conduct research in one of the participating institutions. This research will aim to influence public-sector action and policy, and make ongoing contributions to social change. In addition to the PhD courses, the programme also includes international seminars, local and intensive network courses, summer schools and short stays with the organisations taking part in the project.

The results of the research conducted under the project will be published in the format of Policy Briefs and Actions aiming at civil society organisations and political actors. Funded projects include, among others, research on mining conflicts in the Balkans, waste disposal in southern Italy, oil drilling in the Peruvian Amazon, extraction and violence in the Brazilian Amazon, and land-grabbing in Ethiopia.

"Political ecology is a very young field of study, and scholars working in this area have different backgrounds, coming from disciplines such as geography, anthropology, political science, ecology, environmental science or sociology, which causes fragmentation across the different thematic areas of study. This is the first time that a doctoral programme has been designed specifically for the field of Political Ecology, so our students will be the first cohort to be trained in politic
