The River Taff

The Environmental Justice Research Unit (EJRU) sits within the School of Law and Politics at Cardiff University. The aim of the group is to bring together staff and students that share a concern in environmental degradation and the social conditions of its making. In doing so, EJRU provides a multidisciplinary, multi-stakeholder forum for sharing thoughts and actions to reveal and challenge the social, political and legal relations degrading our planet.

Our website and blog provide an overview of the Unit’s ethos, its members, its events and the Undergraduate and Postgraduate teaching available for students within the School of Law and Politics.

EJRU aims to bring together and carry forward the insights from our academic practice to where they can be most socially useful, and as such, welcomes fostering and developing partnerships with all environmental stakeholders, from the Welsh government to the local and international NGO community. If you would like to get in touch with the group please email Ben Pontin in Law (pontinb at cardiff.ac.uk) or Hannah Hughes in Politics (hughesh8 at cardiff.ac.uk).
