Dr Bec Colvin is a Lecturer at ANU Crawford School of Public Policy with the Resources, Environment, and Development Group. Prior to joining Crawford, she was a Knowledge Exchange Specialist for the ANU Climate Change Institute.
Bec’s research interest is in how groups of people interact with each other – especially in settings of social and political conflict – with regard to climate and environmental issues. In particular, she studies the role of social-political identity in shaping these interactions. Much of this work has a focus on the dynamics and interplay of formalised processes for including citizens and stakeholders in decision-making and informal processes of interaction in the public sphere.
