Our work Recipients 2004

Environment 2004

The Alcorso Foundation Environment Prize is awarded to a student who has completed PhD, Masters, Honours or Graduate Diploma studies.


The inaugural prize was won by Geography and Environmental Studies student, Ronlyn Duncan, for her PhD thesis Science Narratives: the construction, mobilisation and validation of Hydro Tasmania’s case for Basslink.

The thesis has global implications and demonstrates the double standards linked with the validation process for development projects.

There are lessons to be learned for developers, government, the media and the public in this case analysis.
