Research area

Other research

Developing research on other environmental and development issues that transcend our core research areas.

LASEG members also investigate or write about issues that do not strictly fit with our three main areas, since our interests span across other dynamics of policy and social-ecological change. As engaged scholars, we often participate in policy-making processes, as either 'expert' scientists or writers, and we engage in broader scientific debates affecting our profession and civil society more generally. Specifically, we have paid attention to:

  • Global environmental policy debates, resulting from our participation in intergovernmental science-policy platforms (IPCC, IPBES) and policy-oriented research networks and institutions;
  • Land-use and urban planning processes that may not strictly refer to ecosystem services and biodiversity;
  • The future of the academic profession, reflecting on career development, reducing researchers environmental impact and gender equity, among others; and
  • Science and technology studies (STS), including the study of participatory science processes, citizen science and transdisciplinarity.


  • Global change
  • Rural and urban planning
  • Feminist academia
  • Academic Environmental Impact
  • Science and technology studies
