The Scholars work on independent projects — often focusing on environmental challenges in their home countries — as well as Institute projects and programs in their regions and the US. Prior Scholars have worked on projects ranging from identifying legal tools for promoting pollution prevention in key mining countries in the Americas to examining how African constitutional law can be used to promote environmental protection.
