CSaP is delighted to welcome its third Visiting Research Fellow - Baroness Bryony Worthington, the UK Labour Party's Shadow Minister on Energy & Climate Change.
Baroness Worthington's research interests focus around exploring the idea of carbon budgets, and the extent to which they can be effective in solving the politics of climate change. Her research aims to understand more about the effects of carbon budgeting in the UK and abroad, as well as which emerging technologies could be used to tackle the issue of climate change.
The Visiting Research Fellowship scheme began earlier this year, and is an opportunity for internationally outstanding researchers to visit Cambridge. The scheme allows CSaP to continue expanding its growing network, connecting researchers with policy makers and contributing to understanding how their expertise can lead to better policy making.
Our first Fellow – Professor Charles F Kennel, University of California San Diego – led a series of seminars on climate change in January and February this year. Michael Kenny, who joined us from Queen Mary University of London during the Easter term, met with CSaP Policy Fellows to discuss his research on the politics of English nationhood.
