Dr Lindsay Walker

Postdoctoral Research Fellow



My key passion is to understand the role of institutions in societies, and how differences in historical, cultural and political context may shape the implementation of institutional 'rules'. My research to date has focused on legislatures in both the UK and across Africa, with a recent move to understanding conservancies in pastoralist communities.

I also have experience with synthesising a diverse range of in-depth scientific topics utilising both qualitative and quantitative research methods, and have communicated in writing and orally to a wide range of audiences, including parliamentarians, academics, indigenous communities and the general public.
