Eko Priyo Purnomo

I am interested in the process of policy making regarding natural resources management which puts focus on equal open access to natural resources and sustainability.

I am especially interested in how to design and make alternative policy which can give way to natural resources exploitation while on the other hand sustain the development and livelihood of the community.

Permanently, I am a lecturer at Government Affairs Department, Faculty Social and Political Science, University Muhammadiyah Yogyakarta.

I did my undergraduate study at governmental studies Department and then Master's degree at political studies Department, Faculty Social and Political Sciences, Gadjah Mada University, Indonesia.

These studies had laid out the basic understanding and perspectives on the governmental and environmental issues.

Last year, I just finished for studying at the School of Earth and Environment, University of Leeds as a Master by Research.

I realised that my Master's degree and professional experiences are not sufficient to understand the complex problem of the designs and making of alternative policy which concern natural resources exploitation as well as sustainable development issues.

Moreover, I need to improve and have more in depth understanding of the issues from scientific and theoretical perspectives.

I have looked at the Bradford Centre for International Development, University of Bradford, United Kingdom (BCID) curriculum and I am sure that the Department and my Supervisors’ support can help me to enrich my knowledge and reach my goals.  

That is the reason why I am studying at the Bradford Centre for International Development, University of Bradford, United Kingdom.

In addition, studying at this programme, as a leading education in the world with its extensive experience in research, teaching and technology is my long time goal.

I believe it will open the network amongst international practitioners, and lecturers who work on the issues about policy making and its relevance with creating sustainable development.
