Dr Celine Germond-Duret

School of Biological and Environmental Sciences

Senior Lecturer in Human Geography, FRGS FHEA

I have an interdisciplinary background in international relations and development studies and I am specialised in development and sustainability. 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 has appeared in Development and Change; 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). I am co-editing a book and a special issue on the Blue Economy (forthcoming).

I am the leader of the Sea & Society group of LISCO (Liverpool Institute for Sustainable Coasts and Oceans); a member of the LJMU Climate Change panel; and of the School of Biological and Environmental Sciences Research Ethics Committee (BESREC). I served as External Examiner for the BSc/BSc (Hons) Geography and Environmental Management, Harper Adams University (2017-21).

Other Professional Activity:

"Perception of the Sea in Morecambe and beyond" Organised as part as the ESCR Festival of Social Science, with Dr Basil Germond from Lancaster University. 2 activities: 1) a photo exhibition on the sea displayed in Morecambe during which visitors can leave comments as to how the pictures make them feel or think about (September-November 2021); 2) an online public talk in November during which we will explore and discuss people’s awareness of the marine environment, their perception of the sea, and how it connects to their own identity and sense of place. It will be informed by the comments received from the photo exhibition and will link to the broader discussion about the importance of the sea for the Morecambe Bay area. 2021
