Social-Ecological Systems and Crises: Concepts, Cases, Contestations
Module code: PES7065-B
This module aims to:
give you an overview of a range of approaches to understanding and engaging with social-ecological systems and crises, and of some of the ways in which these are contested in theory and practice.
introduce key concepts that will enable you to systematically assess the dimensions of, and prospects for, social-ecological resilience and/or transformation in the context of dynamic social, political, economic and environmental trends and crises.
give you opportunities to apply these concepts to case studies of real-world social-ecological systems, critically examining the diverse ways in which human actors are engaging with crises within these systems.
