PhD Vacancy Position - Innovative Public Law - School of Law at Erasmus University, Rotterdam

PhD position:  Passionate about the law and governance of climate finance?

It’s located within the ‘Innovative Public Law’ team within the Law and Markets department of the School of Law at Erasmus University, Rotterdam. You’ll be joining a growing team of public law teachers and researchers engaged with a variety of heterodox and critical perspectives on law and sustainable development.

As the climate crisis intensifies, the role of the financial sector in addressing the costs of mitigation, adaptation, and loss and damage from climate change has grown. Public policy and legal attention largely focus on the design of ‘green’ financial responses, where a markets-led logic based on the commodification, assetisation and financialisation of ‘climate’ prevails. Here, the role of the state and public actors is to design climate finance markets and provide investment ‘incentives’ to private investors.

This approach facilitates important shifts in the legal identity, authority and agency of public and private actors; in the construction and prioritisation of vulnerabilities to be addressed, and in the articulation of the human-nature relationship for governance. Implications for climate governance include prioritising the spaces and activities with the most capacity to generate financial return over those where action is most urgently needed; narrowing the framing of possible responses to opportunities for financial returns over more plural values and diverting governance attention away from actions necessary to address the primary causes and locations of climate change.

Your research will critically examine a dimension of law, institutions and governance in this climate finance landscape, such as a specific financial sector or instrument; a level of governance or governance actor(s); scientific or technical dimensions to financial governance, a combination of these, or otherwise.

We especially encourage theoretically-informed research. Doctrinal, empirical, inter-disciplinary, socio-legal, comparative or other methodologies (and combinations of these) are welcome.

NOTE: Informal enquiries to Dr. Siobhan Airey are most welcome!

The closing date for applications is the 10th of June, 2024. Interviews will take place between 24 June and 5 July.

New Marine Institute funding for Ocean Law and Governance

In 2023, MaREI: the SFI Research Centre for Energy, Climate and Marine, part of the Environmental Research Institute and the School of Law, UCC together with the School of Natural and Built Environment and School of Law in Queen’s University Belfast were successful in obtaining €1.5 million in funding from the Marine Institute, to undertake the “Co-existence and Co-location in shared island Marine governance” (CoCoMar) project. This five year project focuses on the evolving marine governance frameworks that apply around the island of Ireland, concentrating specifically on transnational working as a key mechanism to achieve international, regional (EU and OSPAR) and national law and policy commitments in an EU Member State (Ireland) and non-EU jurisdiction, Northern Ireland, part of the United Kingdom. Marine spaces do not respect legal or administrative boundaries and natural ecosystems must be managed coherently to achieve international commitments relating to sustainable development, climate change and biodiversity loss.

The need to consider co-location and co-existence has been acknowledged in marine plans and policies but to date there has been limited demonstration of how this can be achieved in practice. CoCoMar aims to address this gap and opportunity by using co-existence and co-location as a unifying lens in which to approach the themes of fisheries management in a post-Brexit world; cross compliance of marine sectors governed by Maritime Spatial Planning; expanding Marine Protected Area networks; and implementing nature restoration. The twin challenges of addressing the impacts of climate change and minimising biodiversity loss necessitates combined, concerted efforts across all governance and societal actors who will have to co-exist in shared marine spaces. Through a comprehensive programme of targeted, collaborative desk-based research, supplemented by focused transnational fora, CoCoMar will build capacity on the island to progress more integrated marine governance by providing new knowledge, evidence and advice for policy-makers to implement actions that are urgently required. The project funding will facilitate the recruitment of three new PhD candidates (two in QUB and one in UCC, to be supervised by Prof. Owen McIntyre and Dr. Anne Marie O’Hagan)
