Thesis title: Financing strategies and practices for nature conservation. A study of the marine protected areas (MPAs) in the Mediterranean basin

Supervisor: Fabian Muniesa

Adopting both Science and Technology Studies (STS) and political anthropology perspectives, I study the different kinds of financing mechanisms for marine protected areas (MPA) which are implemented around the Mediterranean basin. Those financing mechanisms include public funding, Conservation Trust funds or self-financing mechanisms (e.g. entrance fees etc.). My enquiry is empirically based on a case study located in Tunisia
