Personal profile

Scholarly biography

Maia Brons is a doctoral researcher funded by the Doctoral Training Alliance (DTA) Future Societies. Her PhD project explores the relationship between climate-related water insecurities and forced im/mobility in Newham, London. She engages with political ecology, urban and justice scholarship, rooted in empirical examples of im/mobility issues amongst marginalised communities, to highlight how climate-mobility emergencies are occurring within cities conventionally presented as "developed" and "pioneering", notably in climate resilience endeavours. In doing so, Maia seeks to challenge dichotomies which have long dominated research and policy in both climate change and migration sectors, and which continue to hinder just, inclusive and sustainable urban transformations, including: Global North-Global South, developed-developing, centre-margin and human-nature.
