Joanne Scott

ALLEA Board Member | British Academy

Joanne Scott is Professor of European Law and Co-Director of the Academy of European Law at the European University Institute in Florence. In this role, she teaches and supervises PhD and LLM researchers across a wide range of areas in EU and international law. She is currently on leave from University College London where she has taught since 2005. Joanne’s research interests include EU and international environmental law, including climate change law as well as EU external relations. Her more recent research projects have focused on themes such as the regulation of greenhouse gas emissions from shipping and how to address the EU’s large and damaging global environmental footprint. Joanne is a Fellow of the British Academy (2013), the Royal Society of Edinburgh (2012) and the UK Academy of Social Sciences (2019). She is a former member of the (now sadly disbanded) Royal Commission on Environmental Pollution and the UCL/Lancet Commission examining the Health Effects of Climate Change. As these research and policy-related activities show, she enjoys working with colleagues from a wide range of different disciplines.
