Biographie

La professeure Ellis, qui détient une nomination jointe à l’École d’environnement, enseigne et poursuit ses recherches dans les domaines du droit international de l'environnement, du droit international public, de la théorie juridique internationale et des relations internationales.

Sa dissertation doctorale portait principalement sur les principes du droit environnemental international et leur influence sur le développement de principes internationaux pour la protection de l'environnement.

Le projet de recherche actuel de Jaye Ellis examine les intersections entre le droit, la politique, l’économie, l’éthique et la science lorsque ces systèmes sociaux tentent de résoudre des problèmes environnementaux. Un aspect de cette recherche cible l’importance croissante du droit transnational, et plus particulièrement le rôle des acteurs non-étatique dans l’espace transnational.

La professeure Ellis est disposée à superviser les étudiants de deuxième et troisième cycle dont les projets touchent à la théorie du droit international, du droit transnational et des acteurs non-étatiques, la constitutionalisation du droit international, les études sur la science et la technologie, ou encore la théorie autopoïétique.

En 2007, Jaye Ellis était nommée Chercheuse Hydro-Québec en droit du développement durable.
