Tonina Alomar graduated from the London School of Economics with a Bsc in History and International Relations and an Msc in Comparative Politics. Her research centres on the intersection of social and environmental realities. By using environmentally- induced migration as a case study, Tonina is investigating how the neoliberal framework determines the way we reflect and respond to climate change - especially how the the system dilutes actualities into digestible categories that often borrow from stereotypes and misconstructions. Centring on critical theory and green colonialism tradition, the research also looks into on how native populations build perceptions of the “different” and how they “embody strangers”. She uses qualitative methodology to develop questionnaires and interviews in Great Britain, Netherlands and Spain to deconstruct how perceptions, identities and subjectivities are created.
Tonina is based in Brussels/London were she works as an editor and researcher. Currently she is helping develop a three series documentary for TV on the historical, social end environmental sustainability of the food supply chain. Prior to this, Tonina worked in the European Parliament for the energy and Industry committee.
