Onderzoeker

Josie Chambers is a Postdoctoral Researcher and Lecturer in the Forest and Nature Conservation Policy Group of Wageningen University, the Netherlands. Her research broadly examines the politics and implications of multi-scalar approaches to co-producing knowledge and transformative governance for nature and society. At WUR, Josie is researching tensions and connections across diverse approaches to transformative change within the university, and exploring innovative approaches to institutional learning and change. She also lectures and supervises students on social and political theory and approaches to transformative research and change. Josie was previously based at the University of Cambridge for seven years, completing an MPhil in Conservation Leadership, PhD in Geography, and two post-doctoral fellowships. Her work examined the politics driving a mismatch between win-win narratives of conservation success and project outcomes in the Peruvian Amazon. With the Luc Hoffmann Institute, she researched diverse approaches to co-producing knowledge, values and institutions around the world, from local to global contexts. Josie also holds an MSc in Integrated Resource Management from the University of Edinburgh and a BSc in Integrative Biology from the University of Illinois, and has worked on conservation projects in diverse settings in Latin America.
