Case Study Writers

Please add your proposed case study topic below and indicate whether you will write solo or are seeking a collaborator.

Please also add a request for materials from the Library - if you have something specific you would like to be available to you during the Case Study Sprint.


  • Example topic - Name (seeking a collaborator)
  • Climate Justice: Richard Price (seeking collaborator). What distribution of costs for climate change mitigation should be regarded as fair by the most (important) countries ? (Would be most helpful to work with someone who has expertise in causes of climate change)*
  • Are problem-solving approaches to environmental problems inadequate, such that more holistic ecological ethical approaches are needed? How feasible are such changes? Case studies on the development of bans on killing of whales and use of animals for research can show us how some such changes have occurred globally. (Again, if there is someone such as in the sciences with expertise on these issues that woudl be enormously helpful).
  • Janette Bulkan: Illegal logging: a multi-billion global industry hiding in plain sight.
