Research themes

Our immediate goal will be to better integrate ecological and social science within the context of specific conservation conflicts.  These conflicts were decided upon at a founding workshop in November 2016 to which we invited Professor Steve Redpath, an internationally recognized expert in both the theory and practice of conservation conflicts. Professor Redpath peer-reviewed our current and proposed research in addition to advising on challenges, milestones and governance for the new institute.  The following research themes were agreed upon.
