The Political Ecology Research Group explores the relationships between resource management and social inequality in local and global contexts. Political ecology is an interdisciplinary area of research, and the group discusses empirical studies within the field and draws critically on a range of different theoretical approaches. 

The work of this group is also heavily informed by environmental and economic anthropology and geography as well as the anthropology and geography of landscape. Members explore which political, financial and social forces that are at play in politicizing and managing the natural environment, while critically examining knowledge production within this field.
