Dr Ian Bailey

Professor in Human Geography

School of Geography, Earth and Environmental Sciences (Faculty of Science & Environment)

Role

Role
My role within the School of Geography, Earth and Environmental Sciences is Associate Professor (Reader) in Human Geography, specialising in sustainability issues and environmental politics.

Qualifications and Background
I gained a BA (Hons) in Geography from the University of Birmingham in 1987 and was awarded an MSc in Social Research in 1996 and a PhD in 2000 (both from Plymouth University). Between 1987 and 1998, I pursued a management career in the logistics sector before returning to academia full time to complete a PhD examining the use of market-based instruments to regulate the production and use of packaging in the European Union.

Research and Teaching Interests
My research and teaching interests span numerous aspects of environmental politics and sustainability, ranging from climate change and the social dimensions of renewable energy to grassroots sustainability transitions, education for sustainable development, waste management, and societal engagement with marine environmental protection. In geographical terms, my research focuses mainly, but not exclusively, on environmental politics in the European Union, UK and Australia.

These interests are strongly reflected in my undergraduate and postgraduate teaching, where I teach modules on Sustainable Development: Geographical Perspectives, Global Environmental Politics, International Environmental Policy-making, and Sustainability: Issues and Debates.

My recent work includes projects on the politics of European carbon markets, the role of political strategy in national and international climate politics, and emerging notions and practices in the green economy. I have published around 70 refereed articles, 4 books and numerous book chapters and commissioned reports, and I am currently involved in two EU-funded projects examining social perceptions of marine renewable energy.

Teaching interests

My wide-ranging research interests in sustainability issues are strongly reflected in my contributions to teaching on the Geography Undergraduate programmes and the MRes/MSc Sustainable Environmental Management. My main areas of undergraduate teaching are: the Stage One Sustainable Development: Geographical Perspectives module, the Stage Two Western Ireland Fieldtrip, and the final year Global Environmental Politics. At postgraduate level, I currently teach: Sustainability: Issues and Debates and International Environmental Policy-making. I also supervise a broad range of dissertations each year on sustainability issues.

GGX103: Sustainable Development: Geographical Perspectives

In this module, Ian Whitehead and I explore the importance of examining sustainability issues from different geographical perspectives. Aided by contributions from specialist guest lecturers, the module traces the popularisation of sustainable development between the 1960s and 1980s, as it began to exert increasing influence on political and business agendas. It explores the diverse interpretations attached to sustainable development by different actor groups and how key geographical concepts such as scale, place, connection, difference and uneven development can inform understandings of sustainability issues at both a theoretical and practical level. Key issues examined during the module include urban and rural sustainability, waste, transport, fisheries, food, forestry, water, corporate social responsibility and connections between sustainability and spiritual and ethical issues.

GGH303: Global Environmental Politics

In this module, Geoff Wilson and I critically evaluate the processes and constraints affecting the evolution of global environmental politics. The module begins by examining a range of key concepts for understanding environmental politics, including: factors that have led to the internationalisation of environmental politics, the environmental worldviews of different types of actors (governments, NGOs and other grassroots groups, business), and core environmental management principles like the precautionary principle and maximum sustainable yield. The module then explores in more detail how these concepts help us to understanding environmental politics, focusing on examples such as international climate negotiations, transboundary air pollution, biofuels, GMOs, peak oil, environmental markets, and the Antarctic Treaty System.

GGX202: Western Ireland Fieldtrip

Examining sustainable issues in their ‘natural setting’ provides an excellent way of providing new understandings of the practical difficulties of governing sustainability problems. The Ireland field trip offers a rich abundance of such issues within a national context that is both similar to, and sometimes surprisingly different from, that of the UK. Among the various issues I have explored with students as part of this fieldtrip are: tourism and regional development, attitudes to climate change, waste management, transport and mobility, sustainability and planning, and conservation policy. A core part of my approach on this trip is the development of links with local experts, organisations and individuals who manage sustainability issues on a day-to-day basis in practice, as an important complement to class-based teaching. Students taking part in visit can therefore expect ‘unedited encounters’ with sustainability dilemmas that help deepen their understanding that ideal solutions to sustainability problems are a relative rarity and that, in many cases, people involved with managing sustainability issues must operate within real and quite legitimate social, cultural, economic and environmental constraints. This, along with a strong emphasis on student-led investigations, helps to reinforce an appreciation of the importance of geography to the understanding of sustainability.

EAR5107: Sustainability: Issues and Debates

In this postgraduate module, our aim is to give students a deeper critical appreciation of the contested nature of sustainability and sustainable development as academic and ideological concepts, and as practical means of promoting a more equitable balance between environmental, social and economic goals. The module is based around a series of guest seminars by experts in different fields. Each session involves an introductory review of the issue being considered and is followed by a student-led problem-solving or debating exercise. In addition, a number of weeks are set aside for student-led debates. The first is a non-assessed debate to help students familiarise themselves with formal debating techniques and to provide practical experience in constructing arguments on contested issues related to sustainability, in preparation for a second, assessed, debate. Topics examined in this module include transport policy, sustainable livelihoods in developing countries, communicating sustainability to mass audiences, river basin management, climate change and peak oil, and renewable energy.

EAR5201: International Environmental Policy-making

This module is co-taught by myself and Stephanie Lavau and critically evaluates the nature, substance and impact of intergovernmental and supranational governance for the regulation of pollution, resource management and nature conservation issues. The main focus of the module is on the processes and relations (political, scientific, managerial, social, economic, etc.) that shape international cooperation on environmental and sustainability issues. The module builds on GGH303 by examining: key theories of international relations relevant to environmental policy-making and governance; interactions between scientific, political, economic, and other social interests and institutions in international environmental governance; the roles of different international, state and non-state actors in international environmental diplomacy, policy development and enforcement; and the implications of current and possible alternative forms of international environmental politics for environmental management. The module is organised around four main themes: (i) key concepts in international environmental policy-making; (ii) key actors and institutions; (iii) instruments of environmental governance; and (iv) issues in international environmental governance. The module again takes a highly interactive approach, and includes a range of in-class discussions and student-led seminars on keynote environmental agreements and issues.

Research interests

My main research interests are in environmental policy and politics and, in particular national and European Union climate politics and debates on the use of carbon and other environmental markets as a way of promoting resource-efficient, effective and equitable environmental protection. 

My research is strongly underpinned by political science and geographical perspectives on these issues, and my attempts to combine theoretical insights provided by political science with the detailed interest in human-nature and political interactions on environmental and sustainability issues in the real world at a variety of spatial and organisational scales.

My other areas of interest include: social responses to sustainability transitions, focusing particularly on renewable energy technologies; education for sustainable development; and public engagement with marine environmental issues.
