Dr Alix Dietzel
BA, MA, PhD
I am a climate justice and climate policy expert. Focusing both on the global and local scale, I am interested in how just the response to climate change is and how we can ensure a just transition.

Many of our academics speak to the media as experts in their field of research. If you are a journalist, please contact the University’s Media and PR Team:
My research focuses on climate justice and climate policy. I have written about the global scale, comparing the UNFCCC to non-state actors such as C40 cities. I'm currently working on understanding just transition at the city scale.
My teaching focuses on applied political theory. I teach Global Justice and Philosopher Queens and take pride in making my classroom engaging and inclusive. I have won three University teaching awards since 2019.
Outside of teaching and research, I try to use my knowledge to make an impact on society. I sit on the Bristol Advisory Committee on Climate Change and am the Associate Director for Impact and Innovation at the Cabot Institute for the Environment.
