Professor Harriet Bulkeley
Harriet Bulkeley’s research is concerned with environmental governance and focused on three key themes. First, theorizing and explaining the processes and practices of governing the environment. Her work in this area has focused on the politics of managing municipal waste in the UK and, through the EPSRC funded Carbon, Control and Comfort project and the ESRC-EPSRC InCluESEV research cluster is currently developing in the field of energy systems.
Second, the urban politics of climate change and sustainability. Harriet has a long standing interest in research in this field and currently holds an ESRC Climate Change Leadership Fellowship, Urban Transitions: climate change, global cities and the transformation of socio-technical systems, through which she is developing this work. A report commissioned by the World Bank on Cities and Climate Change: The role of institutions, governance and urban planning can be found here: http://www.urs2009.net/papers.html
The third area of Harriet’s research interests lies in the political geographies of environmental governance, in particular emerging (transnational) political spaces on the boundaries of public/private authority through which climate change is being governed. Harriet leads the Leverhulme international network Transnational Climate Governance and through her Philip Leverhulme Prize is examining the politics of climate change emerging beyond the nation-state in the UK.
