Cameron Holley

The Connected Waters Initiative is delighted to welcome Cameron Holley to the Program 5 research stream (Integrating Socioeconomics, Policy and Decision Support) of the National Centre for Groundwater Research and Training (NCGRT).

Cameron Holley joined UNSW Faculty of Law as a Senior Lecturer in 2012, and publishes widely in the areas of environmental law, natural resources law and water law, with a focus on regulation and governance.

Within these fields, he has examined issues of accountability, democratic participation, deliberative decision making, adaptive management and collaborative governance.

In addition to his various articles, book chapters, and policy submissions, Cameron is the author of The New Environmental Governance (with Neil Gunningham and Clifford Shearing, Earthscan, Abingdon, 2011).

An empirical researcher, Cameron has worked closely with Australian and international government and non-government organisations on a range of environmental and natural resource management research projects. His current research agenda is centered on water law, including conventional regulation and monitoring of groundwater use. He is also researching the nature and potential of climate change governance beyond the system of states.

Prior to joining UNSW, Cameron was a postdoctoral research associate at the Regulatory Institutions Network at the Australian National University and a researcher and lecturer at the Centre for Legal Governance and the Centre for International & Environmental Law at Macquarie University.

He has also practiced as a solicitor at Corrs Chambers Westgarth in their Planning, Environment and Local Government section and their Energy and Resources section. Cameron is also a former editor of the Macquarie Journal of International and Comparative Environmental Law.
