Research Interests

Martin’s work addresses various facets of policy for green development and economic transition, reflecting his long-standing interest in the politics and political economy of industrial policy. He has written on the barriers to developing a ‘green development strategy’ in the UK, on contrasting notions of ‘nature’s value’ in environmental policy, and on the politics of river basin planning in the UK (the focus of his present research).
