Jun 2021 — SCELG member Kate McKenzie has won the public vote to be named winner of this year’s Scottish Graduate School of Social Science’s Research Impact and Knowledge Exchange Competition. The SGSSS annual Impact Competition is intended to give PhD students the opportunity to showcase the current impact of their research and win up to £1000 in follow on funding. Kate was one of six finalists who presented a range of inspiring topics and projects that have the potential to make positive change.
Kate’s entry highlighted the Climate Change Litigation Initiative (C2LI) and the broad impact it is already having. C2LI is a global initiative about climate change litigation, where judges, lawyers, researchers, and civil society can easily access succinct and relevant information about climate litigation in specific countries.
Kate’s own research focuses on climate change law and ocean governance with a special focus on national climate change litigation. She is a C2LI legal analyst and has been an integral part of the development of the initiative since its inception.
