Personal profile

Scholarly biography

Beatriz Arnal Calvo studied Philosophy and International Development. For several years, she was a humanitarian practitioner in armed conflict settings where she worked with forcibly displaced populations (refugees, asylum seekers, Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs), returnees and stateless persons) in Eastern Africa (Kenya, Uganda), Western Asia (Palestine, Iraq) and North Africa (Morocco, Tunisia, Saharawi refugee camps in Southwestern Algeria). She is now a doctoral researcher at the University of Brighton's School of Humanities and Social Science, and a member of the Centre of Applied Philosophy, Politics and Ethics and the Centre of Spatial, Environmental and Cultural Politics.

Her research is situated at the intersection of environmental humanities, climate ethics and politics, and feminist peace research. She is particularly interested in policy-oriented and activism-based scholarship around Feminist Peace Research, the Women, Peace and Security (WPS) agenda and the Climate, Peace and Security agenda. 

Before joining the University of Brighton, she worked as a lecturer on Feminist Peace at MA level at the University of Zaragoza, Spain. In 2022, she conducted lectures and seminars on Development and Conflict, and Social Movements in Latin America at BA level at the University of Brighton.

Research interests

Beatriz’s research interests go beyond the academic sphere. She is fundamentally an activist academic. She is a member of the Environmental Peacebuilding Association (EnPax), The Gender and Development Network (GADN), the Peace Research Seminar (SIP), the Women and Gender Constituency (WGC), one of the nine stakeholder groups of the United Nations Framework for the Convention of Climate Change (UNFCCC), and the Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom (WILPF), where she is part of the Executive board in both its UK and Spain branches. Since 2020, she actively participates in WILPF’s WPS, Environment and Climate Justice working groups, and since 2023 she coordinates the research and actions around the Fossil fuel non-proliferation treaty initiative within WILPF Spain.

During the academic year 2022-2023, she is a PRG co-representative at the University’s Committee of Research Ethics and Integrity (UCOREI).

In early 2023, she co-coordinated the People & Planet’s petition for a fossil free careers service at the University of Brighton, for which, in May 2023, she submitted a motion to the University and College Union (UCU) Brighton branch, which passed unanimously.

She is a feminist, a pacifist, a unionist and an ecologist.
