PhD thesis title: Vulnerability-resilience in the French Alps: Analysing the "Opportunity to Work" Capability in the Face of Climate Change. 

"This research aims to analyse the sufficiency-deficiency of people's work opportunities through the lens of the capability approach, in order to identify vulnerable and/or resilient groups in the context of climate change in the French Alpine Massif. It aims to identify intersections between people's generic and climate-change specific vulnerability-resilience in terms of the availability and accessibility of decent work. It includes a retrospective and cross-sectional quantitative analysis of generic decent work opportunity and potential sensitivity of jobs to climate change across the Alpine Massif. Furthermore, the research will encompass a prospective survey-based analysis of people's capabilities and agency as a measure of their individual adaptive potential. Time permitting, the research will include an analysis of how private and public institutions are addressing climate change pressures on employment opportunity/security, i.e. institutional adaptation efforts, in the context of sustainable development."
