Our group works at the interface of social and ecological systems. We use a range of approaches to address key issues in current conservation, with the underlying philosophy that in order to make progress we need to consider the incentives faced by individual decision-makers.

This unique one year full-time MSc course will give you the skills required for success in the highly competitive field of international conservation.
You will be immersed in the work of three international conservation organisations, and will be able to choose 6 month research project titles linked to ongoing conservation programmes.
Each week somebody in the ICCS research group, including masters students on the MSc in Conservation Science, writes a short blog article offering their opinion or outlining a pressing conservation issue.
Vist our blog and get an idea of the themes we work on and what we think about conservation science
ICCS research falls within three broad themes: incentives and attitudes of natural resource users; social-ecological system dynamics; and management of natural resource use. Read about these themes here.
Details of specific projects that members of the group are currently working on can be found in the current projects section
ICCS is a highly multidisciplinary research group and have an ever-growing publication list on a wide range of conservation science topics. We have created a reference archive that we update regularly, providing an example of what our research includes.
We also have an extensive thesis archive showcasing past MSc and PhD projects, with pdfs available for download.
Wildlife conservation in Central Asia has been an ongoing research interest of the group, centring around the ecology and conservation of the saiga antelope.
We also have interests in the effects of changes in the rural economy on land degradation in Kazakhstan, and on broader issues of conservation in Central Asia, including red listing.
