The Environmental Movement Organisations as a Moral Microcosm: An Analysis of the Environmental Ethics of the World Wide Fund for Nature UK
Synopsis of Current Research
By making use of both qualitative and quantitative methods, I am investigating the subtle ways in which the ethical stance of an environmental movement organisation (EMO) - that is, for example, the way in which the organisation conceptualises the relationship between state, market, and civil society on the one hand, and the environment on the other - influences the way in which said organisation is run, and vice versa.
These new insights generated by my research project will not only contribute to a better understanding of how social movement organisations operate, but will also provide a more nuanced account of how campaign strategies and organisational structures influence one another.
