Lynn Beard



Lynn’s ESRC-funded PhD at the University of Surrey School of Hospitality and Tourism Management looked at the roles, interactions and the networked relationships between public and private sector tourism brokers, specifically in relation to policy and practice in planning for tourism. Her focus was the tourism sector in the UK, and the role of local authorities as enablers of or barriers to sustainable tourism development.

Lynn is experienced in a range of qualitative methods including interviews and situation analysis, and has published a paper on using qualitative methods in fieldwork: Beard, L., Scarles, C. and Tribe, J. (2016) ‘Mess and method: using ANT in tourism research’, Annals of Tourism Research, 60: 97-110.

New Economics Foundation

NEF aims to create a new economy that works for people and within environmental limits. We are guided by three missions:

A new social settlement
To ensure people are paid well, have more time off to spend with their families, and have access to the things we all need for a decent life.

A Green New Deal
A plan for government-led investment to reduce the carbon we emit and boost nature, while creating a new generation of jobs.

The democratic economy
To devolve state power and transform ownership of the economy to give everyone an equal stake in the places where we live and work.
