Dr Celine Germond-Duret

School of Biological and Environmental Sciences

Senior Lecturer in Human Geography.

I am specialised in development and sustainability processes, with an interdisciplinary background in international relations and development studies. My interests include the human geography of the marine environment and marine policy, blue economy, (sustainable) development, international environmental politics and climate change, and Indigenous peoples. My current work aims at unravelling the interplay between the sea and sense of place, and deconstructing the traditional narratives and resulting power structures surrounding the sea. My research appeared in Environment, Development and Sustainability ; Marine Policy ; Third World Quarterly ; Sustainable Development ; International Journal on Minority and Group Rights. I am the author of a book on Development, the World Bank and Indigenous Peoples (Karthala Press, France).
