Lynn Finnegan holds an LL.M in Global Environment and Climate Change Law from Edinburgh University and an MA in Geography from Oxford University. She specializes in natural resources and community rights, and has worked for three years with the Quaker United Nations Office in Switzerland. Her work has focused on the links between natural resources, conflict prevention and peacebuilding, with research in agrobiodiversity, forests, land management and the rights of Indigenous peoples and local communities. She has worked with the Karen Hilltribes Trust, IIED, various organic farms, and is currently leading an independently published magazine called Freckle, celebrating people, landscapes, traditional livelihoods and storytelling in Northern Ireland. Lynn can usually be found outside: cycling, surfing, climbing or generally wandering the great outdoors. She remains fascinated in peoples relationships to their landscapes and ecosystems.
