Junior Fellow, MacEachen Institute of Public Policy and Governance; Doctoral Student, Marine and Environmental Law Institute, Schulich School of Law, Dalhousie University

I was called to the Nigerian Bar in 2013, and hold Master of Laws degrees from the University of Lagos, Nigeria and Dalhousie University. Currently, I am a Phd in law student at the Schulich School of Law. My research investigates themes including climate change governance, transitional justice, equity and environmental assessment. I have researched and written on the global governance of environmentally sound technologies from a third world perspective, a dualist approach to offshore renewable energy governance and analysed the Saskatchewan climate policy (the Prairie resilience) vis-à-vis the Pan-Canadian Framework on Clean Growth and Climate Change. My PhD work is focused on the just and effective transition of fossil fuel dependent economies to the non-fossil era. As junior fellow at the MIPPG, I am exploring Canada’s climate policy, the turnover problem and the burden sharing question.
