Dr Craig Thorburn

  • Beginning as an appropriate technology volunteer in Tana Toraja, South Sulawesi in 1975, I have spent more than 20 years in Indonesia working with village communities, local, national and international NGOs, provincial and national government agencies, and bilateral and multilateral aid organisations.

    During the 1990s, I returned to the University of California to pursue an advanced degree that could incorporate my hands-on experience within a broader theoretical and comparative perspective, eventually opting for Geography as the discipline that most effectively pulled together the diverse ways of knowing that I had encountered, that would help me to explore the links between social and ecological processes, institutional structures and economic activity.
