I was cross-appointed to the Faculty of Law and the Department of Environmental Studies in 1995, and hold the Eco-Research Chair in Environmental Law and Policy. I have written widely on international law, environmental and resource management issues, and theories of ecological political economy. I am a co-founder of Greenpeace International, the Sierra Legal Defense Fund, and Smart Growth BC. My research and teaching is currently focused on forestry and fish resource sectors, urban sustainability, and community-based governance.

I am the author or co-author of Forestopia: A Practical Guide to the New Forest Economy (1994); Nature, Production and Power: Towards an Ecological Political Economy (co-editor) (2000); Where There's a Way, There's a Will: Developing Sustainability Through the Community Ecosystem Trust (2001); Ecological Economics and Political Ecology: Towards a Necessary Synthesis (in Ecological Economics, 1999); Fishing Around the Law: The Pacific Salmon Management System as a "Structural Infringement" of Aboriginal Rights (McGill Law Journal, 1999).
