Research and teaching on environmental and energy law and policy is a core area of expertise at the University of Stirling. We work across the natural and the social sciences and in the context of the University International Environment Centre to provide an interdisciplinary perspective on the challenges associated with environmental and energy governance. Our staff are engaged in world leading, rigorous, high impact policy-orientated research on climate change law, renewable energy governance, environmental rights, and the enforcement of environmental law.
Our staff have worked with NGOs, parliaments, international and regional institutions, on the key environmental issues of our time. For example, our research informs the work of the newly established body for the enforcement of environmental law in Scotland, Environmental Standards Scotland (ESS).
Stirling hosts a Masters in International Energy and Environmental Law. The Masters is designed to explore the intersections between energy, environment and regulation. Our programme provides students with an in-depth understanding of international energy and environmental law, as well as of key areas of energy management, environmental policy and economics.
