Personal profile

Research Focus


My research is aimed at furthering our understanding of the conditions to promote advanced social movements and prefigurative politics to successfully implement a Just Transition. My project has a specific focus on the structural crisis of capitalism, its relationship with climate breakdown and the transformative potential of organised labour and social movement agency for a Just Transition.  Ultimately, the project will create a body of work that will significantly strengthen the academic research and intellectual foundation of radical Just Transition Theory.  Constructing a new interpretive paradigm for research that can facilitate social leverage and transformation, influencing and impacting upon the push for Just Transition and peace in a post carbon future.
