Mark Tebboth publishes article on Coastal erosion in Happisburgh

Mark Tebboth, winner of the inaugural Blaikie Prize for best dissertation on Politics of the Environment in 2011, has recently published an article based on his award-winning dissertation. The dissertation examined why stakeholders struggle to find mutually acceptable solutions to the very urgent issue of coastal erosion in Happisburgh, a small village on the North Norfolk coast. The article, published in the Geographical Journal, is called Understanding intractable environmental conflicts: the case of the village that would not fall quietly into the sea (DOI: 10.1111/geoj.12040). Mark Tebboth is currently reading for a PhD in the School of International Development examining the impact of climatically driven environmental change on rural to urban migration in China.
