Jamila Haider

Dr. Jamila Haider is a Researcher at Stockholm Resilience Centre, where she co-leads the Resilience and Sustainable Development Research Theme. She studies the relationships between cultural and biological diversity through the lens of food. Research interests are centred in a) the maintenance of cultural and ecological diversity in mountains, b) the meaning and application of resilience as the capacity to change, and c) how researchers can engage more reflexively in the process of science, both to be more aware of deep interdependencies between science, scientists and practice, and to foster more caring ways of doing science. Dr. Haider has worked as a development practitioner in Central Asia and Afghanistan. She is author of 50+ peer reviewed articles, an award-winning book, and is currently working on a non-fiction book together with an Austrian mountain farmer, exploring sufficiency at the heart of sustainability and what it means to become truly alive in the face of uncertainty.
