TEACHING and SCHOLARSHIP
Professor Long teaches property and environmental law courses. He researches primarily in the area of environmental governance. His recent work has concentrated on theoretical and practical approaches to complex global environmental problems, with an emphasis on the relationships among various scales of governing institutions and the issue areas within their competency. Thus, he is particularly interested in the interactions of international and supranational institutions with each other and with national and subnational governments, as well as the role of non-state actors. His scholarship frequently takes an interdisciplinary approach, drawing upon research in disciplines such as international relations, economics, psychology, and ecology.
Professor Long's scholarship appears in U.S. and international law journals, peer-reviewed and peer-edited journals, and books edited by U.S. and European scholars. He is currently working on his first book, which offers an innovative approach to global environmental governance based on issue linkage.
Professor Long regularly presents his research at legal and interdisciplinary conferences. In the past several years, he has presented throughout the United States and in several European countries by invitation. His work has been presented at law schools (including Yale Law School, Emory University School of Law, and the University of Maryland Francis King Carey School of Law), as well as at international academic conferences (including the Colloquium of the IUCN Academy of Environmental Law, where he was a plenary speaker in 2010).
