Dr Joanne Hawkins
I joined the Law School in January 2016. Prior to this I was a PhD researcher at the University of Bristol. To date, my research has been funded by both the AHRC and Socio-Legal Studies Association.
My broad interests lie in the areas of:
- Environmental law
- Regulation and regulatory decision making processes
- Democratic rights/public participation
- Public perceptions and public trust
- Uncertainty/risk regulation
- Empirical research
My research to date has focused on empirical research relating to regulatory legitimacy in the context of shale gas exploration and the extraction technique of fracking.<h4>Research projects</h4> <p>Any research projects I'm currently working on will be listed below.
