The aim of my research is (a) to explore the way in which neoliberal policies and initiatives in the field of environmental sustainability ideologically maintain the status quo. These policies will be problematised through the use of ideas ranging from Social to Psychoanalytic Theory as well as Social Policy. (b) I will also attempt to investigate what social and political alternatives (if any) are opened up by the environmental crisis.
