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.
