Conference Paper
The literature on blockchain technology and circular economy is at a nascent stage, with only initial limited and superficial recognition of the possible role blockchain may have in supporting circular economy laws and policies. This paper contributes to this emerging area by exploring the regulatory opportunities and challenges for adoption of blo...
Article
Full-text available
Blockchain technology is emerging as a plausible disruptor of waste management practices that influence the governance of plastics. The interest in the waste management community in the po-tential and fundamental changes to complex resource management associated with blockchain adoption parallels recent adoption research in other sectors, such as f...
Article
Significant financial resources are required to mitigate and adapt to climate change. The European Union (EU) recognises the challenge of this. In its Communication developing the EU 2030 Climate and Energy Framework, the EU Commission highlighted climate finance as a key element. This article explores the extent to which this focus on climate fina...
Chapter
In response to constrained resources and a plethora of other environmental issues, there are growing calls to transition to ‘circular economies’ in which resource and waste streams are prevented, reused, recycled or recovered in order to achieve sustainable development. This chapter adopts a case study approach to investigate the alignment between...
Article
Full-text available
Within the context of concurrent global waste and resource crises, there is significant interest in promoting circular economies. One of the identified ways to facilitate greater circularity is through replicable practices of industrial symbiosis, where industries and other organizations exchange waste and by-products resulting in economic, environ...
Article
Published in Coventry Law Journal. In January 2020, the Human Rights Committee published their views in the case of Ioane Teitiota v New Zealand in what has been hailed as ‘landmark’ ruling. The case concerned a national of Kiribati seeking asylum in New Zealand as he claimed the effects of climate change and sea level rise in his native country v...
Article
Full-text available
The global waste and resource crises necessitate and give great impetus for better and more sustainable management of waste. Increasingly, resource and waste streams that once were sent to landfill or incinerated are now reused, recycled, or recovered. Yet, while many laws and policies have been adopted for this very purpose, a number of recurrent...
Article
Full-text available
Purpose The purpose of this paper is to explore the impact that property rights can have on the implementation of circular waste economies, in which waste is reused, recycled or recovered, within the European Union’s Waste Framework Directive. Design/methodology/approach A theoretical lens is applied to the legal definition as well as production a...
Article
Guyana is particularly vulnerable to climate change and its effects. It is, for example, highly susceptible to rising sea levels and flooding, as a result of much of its population living at or below sea level and its worn coastal infrastructure. Guyana’s government has recognised the urgency of addressing climate change, but identified its limited...
Article
The vast amount of plastic waste produced is a huge problem that requires urgent action. A ‘circular economy’ approach, where resource and waste streams are reused, recycled, or recovered instead of sent to landfill or incinerated in order to achieve both economic prosperity and environmental protection, has been promoted by, inter alia, the Europe...
Article
Unsustainable amounts of waste are currently produced that need to be managed. As a result of detrimental economic, environmental, and social implications of the current dominant waste management options (landfill and incineration operations), there are increasing calls by policymakers, practitioners, and researchers to transition towards circular...
Article
Full-text available
Feedback is a critical component of student learning, progression and experience in higher education. Evidence suggests that students are currently dissatisfied with the feedback received, which may in part be as a result of their perceptions and conceptions. This article explores whether student conceptions and perceptions of feedback differ at di...
Article
Full-text available
In urban policy there is an increasing emphasis on the management and sharing of information in and about cities. This paper focuses on external sharing practices which are facilitated by boundary‐spanning organisations. Boundary‐spanning organisations are hybrid structures that provide a platform to link internal networks of the city government wi...
Article
City-level data are needed to inform local strategies as well as to monitor progress towards the implementation of the New Urban Agenda (NUA). Not only do cities need more data, they also need information that is context sensitive and relevant to local policy needs. This paper reviews over 23 global urban data initiatives, concluding that the globa...
