Population, Environment and Resources Group
The Department's new Population, Environment and Resources Group examines global connections between population, environment and resource dynamics and their links to politics. This is an interdisciplinary research group that explores the interplay between politics on the one hand, and geography, demography and ecology on the other. The Group's purview takes in political demography, food security, resource conflicts and related fields. Historical and social aspects of these problems form an important dimension of our enquiry. Members of the department working in this area include:
The Group held a major event on The Politics of Population Change on 19 April 2012 (listen to the podcast here).
Members of the group also organise the Birkbeck Food Group.
