The Right to Protest: The Delicate Balance of its Proper Exercise.
In this episode, the 2022 Podcast Team Amanda, Chuku, and Florencia discuss their thoughts and views upon the development of the right of protest. We voiced our opinions on the Insulate Britain M25 controversy, the Government/Police/Crime/Sentencing Courts Bill, and its impact. We also discussed whether the new wave of protesting aligns with the old methods and ideologies of protesting and whether we agree with it.
Regulating Air Quality
In this episode, we talk to Eloise Scotford (Professor of Environmental Law at University College London) and Andrea Lee (Campaigns and Policy Manager for Clean Air at ClientEarth) about the nature and effects of air pollution, air quality law and governance in the UK, and the challenges of regulating air quality and enforcing air quality standards.

Can Climate Assemblies Change the Conversation?
Interest in the participation of ordinary citizens in environmental decision-making is increasing. Extinction Rebellion is calling for a Citizens’ Assembly on Climate and Ecological Justice; and last year Climate Assembly UK, the first UK-wide citizens’ assembly on climate change, was held to examine how the UK should meet its target of net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050.
Dominic Ward is a Senior Project Officer at Involve, the UK’s leading public participation charity. Involve worked on designing and running Climate Assembly UK. In this episode, PIEL’s Issy Campion and Alex Kidd talk to Dominic about what citizens’ assemblies are and what they can achieve.
