Introduction
I am Lecturer in EU Environmental Law at the University of Strathclyde, where I am also a member of the Strathclyde Centre for Environmental Law and Governance. My main teaching and research interests lie precisely in international and EU environmental law. In my research, I am particularly interested in assessing how legal systems, from a global perspective, interact and contribute to (or indeed hinder) more sustainable patterns of social reproduction. ‘Global’ law is therefore an increasingly important perspective to my teaching and research. I have also published on the compliance with and enforcement of multilateral environmental agreements. At present, moreover, I am engaged in KE activities around the implications of Brexit for environmental law and governance in Scotland.

“Brexit” represents the UK with multiple challenges, inter alia, for the coherence of its “unwritten Constitution” as well as for its territorial integrity. This paper assesses the extent to which the UK has become constitutionally compromised through this process, whether it has shifted towards a form of governance by “elective dictatorship” and n...

Article

This paper takes ecological debt as a measure of environmental injustice, and appraises this idea as a driving force for change in the international legal system.

Under the paradigm of sustainable development, contemporary international law has not been able to shape an effective, nor an equitable, answer to the global ecological crisis.
