Academic Publications

My academic research on self-organised community-scale action on sustainability has produced a number of books, journal articles and book chapters. The best-maintained list of my publications is on my ResearchGate page, where full texts of all items are available either directly or on request. I also have profiles on Academia.Edu and Google Scholar that I visit less frequently.

My blog The Earth Punk Chronicles highlights my current work, and is also open as a co-creation space for potential co-authors and research collaborators. Please check that out, and get in touch if you’re interested in contributing.
