XII Strathclyde Postgraduate Colloquium on Environmental Law and Governance

Time:   Thursday, 30th May 2024, 09:30-16:30 UK time

Venue: Collins Suite, Collins Building

             22 Richmond St, Glasgow G1 1XH 

Call for Abstracts – Submission deadline extended: 31 March 2024 

This Colloquium provides an opportunity for Post Docs, Ph.D., MPhil and LLM students engaged in research on global environmental law and governance to present and discuss their work, or a part of it, in a supportive atmosphere. It also provides an opportunity for students researching any area related to environmental law (who may not be presenting) to meet and network with other peers and experts working in this area of law. 

The 2024 Colloquium builds on the success of the previous eleven colloquia, which saw researchers from a wide range of countries, present their research on topical areas of environmental law and governance. Leading environmental law academics acted as discussants, providing the researchers with insightful comments and feedback. 

Accepted presentations will be divided into thematic sessions chaired by a member of the Law School. Each presentation will last 15 minutes, followed by ample time for debate introduced by comments from the discussant. 

Presentations covering any topic of global environmental law and governance will be considered. However, we especially welcome any contributions regarding environmental law, at the interface of legal pluralism, legal hybrids, decoloniality, and environmental democracy. 

Submit an abstract of no more than 250 words to scelg@strath.ac.uk by 31 March 2024. Please state  ‘XII Strathclyde Environmental Law Colloquium – Abstract Submission’ in the subject line of the email with your submission. 

Successful applicants will be informed by 01 April 2024

Programme: A detailed programme with selected speakers and discussants will be published in April. 

Venue: University of Strathclyde Campus, Collins Suite. This event is in person only.
