We are pleased to inform you that Ariadne Collins will be joining us as a visiting fellow during the academic year of 2017-2018.
Ariadne Collins is particularly interested in climate change governance and politics. Her research adopts post-structural approaches to interrogating the intersection of power, development and neoliberalism in global efforts to conserve tropical rainforests. Her doctoral research focused on the implementation of the Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and forest Degradation (REDD+) initiative in Guyana and Suriname. Ariadne was awarded a PhD in Environmental Sciences and Policy (Summa Cum Laude) in May, 2017 from Central European University in Budapest, Hungary. She also holds a Masters in Research (MRes) in International Environmental Policy and Politics from the University of Westminster, London and a Bachelor’s degree in International Relations from the University of Guyana. Her current work draws on Foucauldian governmentality to explore relationships between economic growth and environmental sustainability by analyzing global efforts to govern tropical rainforests through REDD+.
