The Climate Change (Scotland) Act 2009 created the statutory framework for greenhouse gas emissions reductions in Scotland. It committed Scotland to a 42% reduction in greenhouse gases by 2020 and 80% reduction by 2050. At the time, the Act was considered a world-leading piece of climate change legislation and it is still considered an example of successful, collaborative policy making.
What made it such a success?
Forming part of the University’s Scotland’s Future Series, this project will facilitate a conversation between representatives of different agencies involved in the development of the Climate Change (Scotland) Act 2009 to capture an informal narrative of how the Act was developed.
Dr Skrzypek is looking to engage a CEERIS intern whose role will be to:
- Conduct literature, archival and document review to produce a formal timeline of the policy development process
- Assist Dr Skrzypek in organising a policy reunion event during which participants will be asked to share their experiences of the process and populate the formal timeline with an informal narrative.
- Attend the event and produce, together with Dr Skrzypek, a write-up of the event
- Co-author, with Dr Skrzypek, a blog entry based on the event write-up
The policy reunion event is planned for 13 May 2022 (in-person, in St Andrews).
The intern will be funded for 7 six-hour blocks to allow them to work on this project. Each six-hour block will be renumerated at the rate of £54.00.
Applicants must be matriculated Honours or Masters students of the University of St Andrews, and be able to demonstrate strong research, data analysis, and writing skills.
Start date: As soon as possible.
