The ANU hosts a number of respected and renowned researchers in the field of international climate change economics policy. This expertise ranges from PhD students through to former negotiators with the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) and professors. Academics affiliated with the Climate Change Institute come from primarily the Crawford School of Public Policy, the Centre for Climate Change Economics and Policy and Fenner School of Environment and Society and cover a broad range of issues relevant to both the ongoing international climate negotiations (including the upcoming Paris climate summit) as well as the broader realm of international climate policy and politics.
In addition to the researchers listed below, there are also numerous PhD students at the Crawford School who have, or are, studying international climate change policy. George Carter is an ANU Pacific Islander Scholar who is exploring how small states from the Pacific work and strategizes their positions in the various political groupings/coalitions they belong to in the climate change regime across a range of areas including the UNFCCC negotiations. Eliza Murray is a PhD scholar with the Crawford School who previously researched fragmentation in the climate regime but has now switched focus to domestic politics by examining the role of interest groups in Australian climate policy.
