Anne Jerneck is associate professor of Sustainability Science at LUCSUS (Lund University Centre for Sustainability Studies) and a principal investigator and PhD advisor in LUCID (Lund University Centre of Excellence for the Integration of Social and Natural Dimensions of Sustainability. Until 2008 she was a senior lecturer and PhD assistant advisor at the Department of Economic History from where she also has her Ph.D. focusing on the role of the State in the transition from a planned to a market-oriented economy in Vietnam. In the late 1990s, Anne participated in the interdisciplinary teaching team initiating and establishing the Master’s Program in Asian Studies at LU, and since then she is involved in several international Master’s programs in Development studies and Sustainability science. Her research and teaching is oriented toward processes of social, structural, and institutional change in relation to poverty, gender inequality, climate change and the politics of sustainability in sub-Saharan Africa. Her methodological contribution to sustainability science relates to knowledge structuring, interdisciplinarity, and transdisciplinarity.

  • Jerneck, A. 2018. What about Gender in Climate Change? Twelve Feminist Lessons from Development. Sustainability 10 (3), 627; doi:10.3390/su10030627

The above article is a newly published piece that serves to show the climate policy and sustainability communities what can be learned about poverty and inequality from three strands of debates: the long term development discourse, the newer gender debate within that, and sustainability research on small-scale farming in sub-Saharan Africa.

  • Jerneck, A. 2018. Taking gender seriously in climate change adaptation and sustainability science research: views from feminist debates and sub-Saharan small-scale agriculture. Sustainability Science 13: 403; doi.org/10.1007/s11625-017-0464-y

The above is an article that proceeds from development thinking, and feminist debates within that, to show how development and feminist theories and perspectives can help formulate a research agenda and pointed questions for research on climate change responses, particularly adaptation – and in settings in the global South.

The above article is an editorial for a special issue on Sustainability Science that I planned, completed, and edited together with two PhD candidates. It is an example of how early career researchers can collaborate under the guidance of senior researchers to practice all steps of a review and publishing process. I designed the theme and the criteria for paper submission to the Special Issue, and contributed to the analysis and writing process.
