The Environmental Implications of Redistributive Land Reform Redux

On 25 August 2016 Dr. Jayne Glass, Dr. Calum Macleod and yours truly will be taking part in a public lecture at the University of Aberdeen on the Environmental Implications of Redistributive Land Reform. More information can be found here. If you click through, you will see that attendance is free but interested parties are asked to please register interest in advance by emailing my colleague Suzi Warren.

This will be a reunion lecture. Jayne, Calum and I delivered a similar lecture at the University of Edinburgh last year. A few things have happened since then, not least the passage of the Land Reform (Scotland) Act 2016. With slightly less fanfare than met that legislation, my article in the Environmental Law Review on (you guessed it) ‘The environmental implications of redistributive land reform’ has been published. (The background to that post and an open access version can be found here.) This means that even those who attended last year’s lecture should find something of interest this time around, as we update our overall content to reflect the recent legal and indeed political developments, and I update my content to reflect what the peer reviewers at the Environmental Law Review said about my article.

Although the event has been organised by the School of Law at the University of Aberdeen, it is very much designed for an interdisciplinary and not necessarily legally qualified audience. Those involved in conservation, agriculture, land management or community activism should find something of interest, or you might just be a bit nosy about what seems to be a hot political issue in Scotland. Irrespective of your background, it would be great to see you if you can make it.
