Martin Craig is a research associate at SPERI currently working on a UK case study for the ValNat Project, an international research project investigating the political consequences of ‘ecosystem service’ valuation.
Prior to joining SPERI, Martin completed his PhD at the University of Sheffield in the Department of Politics, where he previously undertook undergraduate and Masters-level studies.
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).
