Jen Iris Allan

Jen is a Ph.D. Candidate in political science studying how global environmental politics shift when social movements put a human face on climate change and other environmental problems. Her dissertation work asks why these social movements and NGOs representing social issues took up the climate challenge and, around the same time, started advocating for a more just low-carbon future.

Her research benefits from her work with Earth Negotiations Bulletin. As a writer and team leader, Jen has attended over 20 meetings where states negotiate climate change, and chemicals and wastes management. Currently, she is producing a series of educational videos to help orient newcomers interested in global environmental politics.
