Our research

Team members of the Ecological Justice research group at QUT

Our research is seeking to find transformative solutions to governance more generally, including environmental law, by exploring how being just requires that we are also deeply attentive to and inclusive of other life forms. Our researchers work across disciplinary frontiers and in multidisciplinary teams in recognition of the socio-ecological impacts and potential of governance frameworks.

Our researchers are currently working on law and governance projects relating to:

  • biodiversity and biodiversity conservation;
  • restoration and extinction;
  • feminist approaches to environmental law;
  • food systems and agro-ecological landscapes;
  • wetlands, river basins and catchments, and marine and coastal ecosystems;
  • green product stewardship;
  • environmental decision making and courts; and
  • the balancing of human and environmental rights.
