Lucy Ford is Senior Lecturer in International Relations at Oxford Brookes University in the UK. She gained a first degree in Politics and International Relations at the University of Kent at Canterbury and went on to do an MA and DPhil in International Relations at Sussex University.

Her doctoral research examined the global political economy of environmental governance and resistance. Her current research interests lie mainly in the areas of International Relations Theory and International Political Economy with a particular regard to, on the one hand, governance, civil society and social movements, and on the other, to the political economy of sustainable development and the challenge of ecological thought to International Relations.

She further has an interest in gender, peace and security issues. Before coming to Oxford Brookes she worked as researcher and parliamentary assistant to Caroline Lucas, Green Member of the European Parliament in Brussels.
