Fergus Green is a climate policy consultant and a researcher at the London School of Economics & Political Science (LSE), where he has been based since 2012.
Fergus’ research and policy interests are clustered around three themes: climate change and decarbonisation; economic justice and inequality; and democratic institutions and governance. He draws on a variety of disciplines to analyse these issues, particularly political science, philosophy and law.
From January 2014 to October 2015 Fergus was a Policy Analyst and Research Advisor to Professor Nicholas Stern at the LSE’s Grantham Research Institute on Climate Change and the Environment and the Centre for Climate Change Economics and Policy, where his work focused on international climate cooperation, China, and various theoretical topics relating to climate change mitigation. He was also a Teaching Fellow in the Centre for International Studies & Diplomacy at SOAS (2013–14), teaching Global Energy & Climate Policy at masters level.
Before moving to London Fergus practiced as a lawyer in the Melbourne office of Allens for three and a half years, specialising in climate change, energy, water and environmental regulation.
Fergus has written more than 100 op-eds, essays and blog posts on climate change and his work has been covered widely in the press, from The Financial Times to the China Daily.
He is a graduate of the University of Melbourne (BA, LLB (Hons.)) and the LSE (MSc. in Philosophy & Public Policy with distinction), having also studied at Georgetown University and the Beijing International Studies University.
Fergus is currently undertaking a PhD in the LSE Department of Government, focusing on transitional justice in major economic policy reforms. At the LSE Fergus is also affiliated with the Centre for Analysis of Risk & Regulation, the International Inequalities Institute, and the Grantham Research Institute. He is a 2012 Sir John Monash Scholar.
