Professor Maria Lee wins The Society of Law Scholars 2016 Best Paper Prize
28 September 2016
Presented during the Environmental Law section of the SLS 2016 Annual Conference held in Oxford from 6-9 September 2016, the paper explores the ways in which the planning system receives different knowledge claims and validates some of them, discussing the ways in which legal processes shape those knowledge practices. Knowledge claims about the ways in which large wind farm developments will affect valued ‘landscapes’ provide the context for Maria’s analysis.
This paper is part of a broader ESRC funded project, Evidence, Publics and Decision-Making for Major Wind Infrastructure, and will be published in the journal Legal Studies.
