Professor Stewart Lockie began his research career investigating the evolution and impacts of environmental policy in agriculture. This has since been extended to studies of biodiversity conservation, environmental standards, markets in ecosystem services, food security, coastal management, resource development, management of natural and industrial hazards etc.
Professor Lockie’s work is multidisciplinary, high impact and focussed on critical issues associated with global social and environmental change.
Professor Lockie is involved in numerous leadership activities both within and external to the University. He is immediate past President of the International Sociological Association’s Research Committee on Environment and Society and a member of the International Council for Science’s Committee for Scientific Planning and Review.

Farmers of the future: Challenges of a feminised agriculture in India
- Indicative Funding
- $5,910 over 3 years (administered by ANU)
- Neoliberal economic policies are fundamentally transforming the social landscapes of rural India, causing a deep agrarian crisis. The agrarian changes accentuate the unequal consequences for poor women and women in relation to: production (labour, tenure); livelihood and food security; access to and ownership of assets such as land and water and access to agriculture innovations and institutions. This multiscalar project investigates the causes and consequences of feminisation of agriculture in India's transitioning economy in order to understand how gender roles and relations are being re-shaped in communities and households in diverse socioeconomic and cultural contexts and agro-ecological areas.

Conflicting temporalities of climate governance: a comparative sociology of policy design and operationalisation in Australia and the UK
- Indicative Funding
- $237,865 over 3 years
- This research will investigate the ways in which climate governance both reflects and reconstitutes our understanding of the temporal dynamics of anthropogenic climate change. Through a comparative case study of Australia and the UK, the project aims to promote a deeper understanding of potential contradictions between the temporalities of global environmental change and the temporalities of governance strategies developed in response to it: to develop a more sophisticated sociological theorization of the temporalities of socio-ecological change; and to contribute to informed debate in Australia and elsewhere concerning the utility of key conceptual frameworks and policy instruments.
