Biography

Dr. Andrew Jackson is a graduate of Oxford University (BA, Law) and of Cambridge University (LLM). He also holds an MSc in Biodiversity and Conservation from Trinity College Dublin (TCD) and a PhD from TCD on EU environmental policy and law.

Dr. Jackson's research interests focus on environmental and planning law and policy at international, EU and Irish levels, and he welcomes expressions of interest from prospective doctoral and post-doctoral students in these fields. He has particular interests in nature conservation law, impact assessment, and environmental democracy rights (access to information, public participation, and access to justice).

Dr. Jackson previously worked for international law firm Slaughter and May, in London and Paris; for the UK government's legal service, in the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra); and with NGOs Friends of the Irish Environment and An Taisce, the National Trust for Ireland, where he was Natural Environment Officer and In-house Solicitor.

Dr. Jackson has been involved in public interest environmental and planning disputes for many years, including before the Irish, English and EU courts, and is an invited member of ELAW (Environmental Law Alliance Worldwide), a global alliance of public interest environmental lawyers, scientists and other advocates.

Dr. Jackson is currently working on a research project with the Access Initiative and the World Resources Institute (recently ranked the top environmental think tank globally for the third consecutive year) to develop indicators testing countries' implementation of the Aarhus Convention, an international convention on environmental democracy rights.
