Lucy Stroud is a PhD Candidate in Law and Research Fellow at the New Zealand Centre for Environmental Law. Her research interests are anchored to international law and governance of the global commons as well as the law of the sea and polar realms. These interests are galvanised by her projects as an international law consultant with United Nations partners, non-governmental organizations and indigenous tribes; and her membership of global think tanks from the IUCN World Commission on Environmental Law and International Ocean Institute to the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics. She presently contributes to building capacity in international environmental law within Pacific territories for the ACP-MEAs Programme implemented by the United Nations Environment Programme. Her publications include Multilateral Environmental Agreement Negotiator’s Handbook: Pacific Region 2013 (SPREP/New Zealand Centre for Environmental Law, 2013) and Common Heritage of Mankind: A Bibliography of Legal Writing (Fondation de Malte, 2013). The awards for her pursuits in law encompass the NZFGW Fellowship; University of Auckland Masters Scholarship; Alumni Association Masters Scholarship; Sir Alexander Johnstone Scholarship in Law; and AG Davis Scholarship in Law.
