The Society has published a new report on the contributions of geographers and geography in shaping the law and legal proceedings.
Authored by Professor Katherine Brickell (King’s College London), Professor Alex Jeffrey (University of Cambridge), and Professor Fiona McConnell (University of Oxford), the report draws on a survey and follow up interviews to provide a snapshot of ongoing work by geographers in the legal realm and discusses the associated opportunities and challenges. The report also contains biographies of key geographers from across the discipline, explaining how they became involved in this area and the work they have undertaken.
The authors of the report note: “Geographers from all career stages engage in this kind of legal work, but often it remains hidden. A key goal of the report is therefore to make visible these endeavours, promote the importance of geography to public audiences, and to learn from geographers’ experiences to provide better support and training for geographers in the future.”
The survey and interview research that forms the basis of the study was funded by the Society as part of our broader advocacy for geography and its wider impacts.
