Colin Crawford has degrees in modern history from Columbia (BA, 1980) and Cambridge Universities (BA, first class honours, 1982), and received a University of Cambridge Research Studentship to support his research towards a doctoral degree in Modern History (1982-1984). He interrupted that study to attend Harvard Law School, from which he graduated in 1988. As a lawyer, he worked in Tokyo and New York, concentrating in environmental and land use law. As a teacher and scholar, his work concentrates in the environmental area, and particularly with distributional justice concerns as they are expressed in environmental law and policy. Increasingly, his work addresses comparative, cross-cultural environmental justice issues, with a particular focus on Latin America and the Caribbean.
In addition to his academic work, he is the author of an award-winning book of narrative non-fiction, Uproar at Dancing Rabbit Creek: Battling Over Race, Class and the Environment (1996) and is a sometime journalist, having written on environmental topics for The Wall Street Journal and Salon.com, among others.
Crawford Co-Directs the College’s Center for the Comparative Study of Metropolitan Growth, and runs an inter-disciplinary summer foreign study program on the Urban Environment and Health, in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
