Biography/ Background

Professor Timothy Doyle, B.A. Hons. (Melb), M.A. High Distinction (Adel), Ph.D. (Griffith), is Emeritus Chair of Politics and International Relations at Keele University in the United Kingdom. At Keele, he served as Founding Head of the Research Centre for Politics, International Relations and Environment (RC for SPIRE).

His primary employer is the University of Adelaide in Austrialia, where he is Professor of Politics and International Studies. His teaching covers Global Environmental Politics, International Political Economy and Political Fiction. He served as Founding Chair and is immediate-past-co-Director of The Indo-Pacific Governance Research Centre (IPGRC) in the School of Social Sciences in the Faculty of Arts.

Doyle is also Distinguished Research Fellow at the Australia-Asia-Pacific Institute (AAPI), Curtin University, Western Australia.

Professor Doyle has taught and contributed to university courses in the United Kingdom, the United States, Malaysia, India and Australia and has been a dedicated environmental and human rights activist since the 1980s.

In 2014, the Commonwealth of Australia appointed Professor Doyle as Chair of the Indian Ocean Rim Association Academic Group (IORAG) for 2014 – 15 with a remit to encourage and lead closer academic cooperation and output on Indian Ocean issues and projects relevant to IORA members. The IORA Academic Group, based in Ebene, Mauritius, was created to provide an opportunity to build bridges and increase networking between the three tiers of government, the private sector and academia within the Indian Ocean Rim.

Currently, Doyle is Project Leader for the Australian Research Council Discovery Project (2012-2015) entitled: ‘Building and Indian Ocean Region.’ The project is administered by the University of Adelaide.  The remit: ‘The Indian Ocean Region, of vital geopolitical importance to Australia, is the heart of the Third World - overwhelmed by chronic poverty, precarious political systems, and conflicting ethno-religious identities. This project will document attempts at constructing regional identities and institutions, and facilitate the process of building a secure Region’.

He is the current Chief Editor of the Journal of the Indian Ocean Region (Routledge: London and New Delhi); and serves on the editorial board of the international journal Social Movement Studies (Routledge: London). He is editor of the Introductions to Environment – Society and Environment Series for Routledge, and also serves as series editor, with Phil Catney, of the Transforming Environmental Politics and Policy Series, Ashgate, London. He is founding Director of Human and Environmental Security for the Indian Ocean Research Group (IORG) based in Chandigarh and Perth.

Professor Doyle has published widely in a diverse range of journals including Third World Quarterly, Geopolitics, Environmental Politics, Critical Social Policy, Social Movement Studies, Mobilization, Australian Journal of Political Science, Journal of the Indian Ocean Region, and Social Alternatives.

Professor Doyle’s research interests include: the Politics and International Relations of the Environment; Politics and International Relations of the Indian Ocean Region; Indo-Pacific Governance; International Political Economy; Human and Environmental Security; and Political Fiction.

Several of these interests converge in his most recent book, Dyandi: A political fiction, (Melbourne Books: Melbourne, Australia 2014), a novel which documents environmental destruction and militant green resistance in the Philippines.
