Dr Elizabeth Oughton is a Principal Research Associate in the Centre for Rural Economy. Her research has developed around the question of ‘How do people in their domestic relations create their lives and livelihoods and what constraints and opportunities does the natural environment offer?’. The central themes of this research have included: the importance of institutions, including households, to people’s wellbeing; the focus on the household as a means of organising productive and consumption activity; and a theoretical analysis which concentrates on the possibilities and constraints through which people conceive, and act in, their own interests.
