Lisa Bossenbroek


Lisa Bossenbroek obtained her Ph.D. in rural sociology at the University of Wageningen, the Netherlands (2016). In her research, she questions from a feminist perspective processes of agrarian and environmental change. In addition, she is interested in understanding the interactions of such processes and the people’s experiences living them. Currently, she is co-leading the project SALIDRAA 2 – Salt in the system at the University Koblenz-Landau, Germany, which focuses on the social and environmental impacts of environmental change in the Drâa River Basin in Morocco. In this project, she analyzes ecological changes from a gender justice perspective and is interested in how local actors develop alternative development paths. She is also leading the DUPC2 Water intensive agricultural growth project in North Africa: changing gendered farm identities and practices, funded by the Dutch Foreign Ministry.
