Batch 9 blogs about their thesis time

January 23, 2015

Nine Master candidates in batch 9 will be blogging about their adventures during semester 4, February to June 2015.

Each year, MESPOM-students are venturing out into the world, backed up by their dedicated supervisors from at least one of the six MESPOM Consortium Partners.

Some of them will investigate their topics by travelling to far away places, others will spend their time in the lab.

Although I have graduated more than a year ago, from time to time I still think about the wonderful years of MESPOM. Apart from meeting interesting and clever classmates, I've got excellent academic training in the field of environmental management and policy, especially during my study in IIIEE, Lund University.

I am a 2009 MESPOM graduate and I am grateful for the opportunity I was given through my thesis work to prepare the ground for getting my dream job! It all started in March 2009, when I’ve put up a project plan for my research with my advisor Dr. Brandon Anthony from CEU. My topic was about “Improving the effectiveness of protected areas management in Lebanon”, and I was already eager to come back home and apply my knowledge acquired through 2 years of intensive environmental studies in MESPOM.

While preparing MESPOM thesis, I decided to take advantage of our global network and focus on a topic that was not just environmental but also related to the social and economic dimensions of sustainability.
