Martin C. Lukas is a post-doctoral researcher at the University of Bremen, Germany. He presently conducts a research stay at the University of Melbourne’s School of Geography. His interdisciplinary research analyses the material, discursive, and socio-political dimensions of environmental issues and changes and links them to changes in resources use, access, and control, and related conflicts and governance regimes in the context of political-economic developments. He thereby puts emphasis on incorporating historical trajectories and works across scales. His research of the past years has focused on land use, conflicts over land and forest resources, and watershed governance in Java and Sumatra, and on gold and diamond mining and conflicts over nature protection in Kalimantan.
