Antonio Cardesa-Salzmann

SCELG Staff Member

Antonio is Lecturer in EU Environmental Law and a member of SCELG. Before joining the University of Strathclyde in October 2016, he taught and conducted research on international and EU environmental law at the University of Barcelona (2002-2010) and the University Rovira i Virgili (Tarragona, 2010-2016). His main research and teaching interests lie in those two areas of law. At present, his research focusses on legal systems’ interactions from a global perspective and appraises the potential contribution of such patterns of interaction towards more sustainable patterns of social reproduction. ‘Global’ law is therefore an increasingly important perspective to his teaching and research.

He has also published on the compliance with and enforcement of multilateral environmental agreements. As a member of SCELG, he has also engaged in research and knowledge exchange activities around the implications of the UK’s decision to leave the EU on environmental law and governance in Scotland.
