JUHA KOTILAINEN

University Lecturer

In my research as a human geographer, I am interested in exploring the interface between society and nature. I have investigated the ways residents in local communities in both urban and rural surroundings come to terms with the transforming spaces they inhabit as well as the ways they deal with issues related to resources at their disposal. I also study the politics of conservation of biodiversity in its different forms. Often focussing on the local scale as a lens through which to examine broader societal and political transformations, there is a crucially multi-scale dimension in my research.
