Assistant professor

Machiel Lamers is an Associate Professor at the Environmental Policy Group of Wageningen University in the Netherlands. His research interests are in the fields of environmental policy and governance, sustainable tourism, and tourism and nature conservation. I develop and lead research projects on the governance of tourism and (global/regional) environmental change in coastal and marine destinations, including  both the Arctic and Antarctic region, the Caribbean and Indonesia. Theoretically and conceptually I aim to apply and build the sociology of environmental mobilities and flows, as well as practice theory approaches.
