Key academics

There are many academics writing on the intersection of Trade & Environment. I cannot stress enough that this is not some attempt at determining who knows what or in any way make some “ranking”. It is simply a non-exhaustive sample of some of the academics that I have personally read and come across in my own studies. For anyone looking to educate oneself in this field, knowing these names can be a great start in finding good articles and books from people with an established interest in trade and environment. To contribute with more suggestions, please send me a message. 

On a further note of some importance, some of the greatest expertise on these issues is contained in organizations outside the universities. I highly recommend looking up some of that expertise by browsing the “Key organizations” page.
