About the contributor

Louisa Parks

Louisa Parks is an Associate Professor in Political Sociology at the School of International Studies and the Department of Sociology and Social Research at the University of Trento. Prior to that, she was a lecturer at the School of Political and Social Sciences at the University of Lincoln in the UK.

Her research covers the environment and local communities and how citizens can influence politics and international policy independently from the ballot box, both through targeted campaigns and activism. She published numerous academic papers and two books: Benefit-sharing in Environmental Governance: Local Experiences of a Global Concept, which was published by Routledge this year and which is available in Open Access, and Social Movement Campaigns on EU Policy: in the Corridors and in the Streets, which was published by Palgrave Macmillan in 2015.
