Biography

I was appointed an Adjunct Professor at Flinders University with Full Academic Status with effect from January 2017. I held a tenured professorial position before my departure overseas from Flinders, and am now also employed as a permanent full professor and Chair in Energy Law at the University of Stirling, Scotland. My work there adds an important energy law dimension to my established environmental law scholarship.

Educated in the UK and Australia, I joined Flinders University in 2010, from the Faculty of Law, Chinese University of Hong Kong (2007-2010), and prior to then the University of South Australia (2003-2007). I have previously also worked at law schools in Galway (2000), Exeter (2000-2001) and Tasmania while a doctoral student. I have furthermore been employed as a lawyer at the Environment Agency of England and Wales (2001-2003), and in private practice.

I specialise in international, comparative and national environmental and energy law, and the relationship between law and politics. As an interdisciplinary scholar, I have a keen interest in global governance, constitutionalism and regions and sub-regions, particularly in Australasia, Asia, Europe and at the Poles.

Research interests

Simon specialises in transboundary governance: international law, relations and politics in Asian, Australasian, European and polar contexts, recently with reference to the Espoo, Aarhus and World Heritage Conventions. His PhD (1999), Legislative Environmental Assessment: An Evaluation of Procedure and Context with Reference to Canada and the Netherlands, relates to regulatory impact assessment and strategic environmental assessment (SEA), particularly legislation; this has increased attention under the SEA Protocol and EU Impact Assessment processes.

He has general research interests in environmental law and policy, environmental planning and management, and the relationship between legal systems and law and politics. These relate to domestic law in federal, unitary and mixed systems (Australia, England, Hong Kong), and international and European Union law. Specific research interests focus on strategic and transboundary approaches to EIA, terrestrial and marine protected areas, public participation and access to justice, and treaty based non-compliance procedures. Recent work considers comparative approaches.

Simon has published in numerous law and policy science journals, including International and Comparative Law Quarterly, Nordic Journal of International Law, Review of European Community and International Environmental Law, Chinese Journal of International Law, Environmental and Planning Law Journal, Hong Kong Law Journal, LawAsia Journal, Asia Pacific Journal of Environmental Law, Environmental Impact Assessment Review, Journal of Environmental Assessment Policy and Management, and Australasian Journal of Environmental Management.

He has around 100 publications, most sole authored, including 5 research books (Federation Press, Earthscan / Routledge, Ashgate, Elgar); about 60 chapters, (including 3 different Cambridge collections, another in progress), over 30 refereed articles; and over 20 reviews. Chapters and journal articles since 2005 are linked to this webpage, and a full publications list since 1997 is also available; this includes those entered for the UK Research Assessment Exercise (RAE) 2001, and the Excellence in Research for Australia (ERA) 2012 and 2015 evaluations.
