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.
