About the Project
This PhD project aims to explore the travel and translation of democratic practices between different countries, domains and policy areas. The case or cases studied will be defined by the interests of the student, but could include prominent approaches currently being used in environmental policy like open data or sentiment mapping. The project will entail: (i) reviewing existing concepts and approaches to the movement of democratic practices; (ii) developing a conceptual framework on the basis of this review; (iii) applying the approach to one or more case studies; and (iv) developing approaches to engage policy makers and civil society actors in envisaging and anticipating the futures of these democratic practices. This PhD will contribute to developing new approaches to understanding democratic practices and policy travel, as well as providing constructive insights on contemporary democratic practices in environmental policy. This project would suit excellent candidates with a social science or interdisciplinary environmental science background.
