Welcome to michaeljacobs.org. Here you'll find information on my current activities and some of the things I’ve done in the past.
I am principally based now at two academic centres: the Department of Political Science / School of Public Policy at University College London and the Grantham Research Institute on Climate Change and the Environment at the London School of Economics, at both of which I am a Visiting Professor. I am Co-Editor of The Political Quarterly. I am also an Adviser to the climate change programme of the Children's Investment Fund Foundation (CIFF).
From my UCL base I’m researching and writing about various themes in social democratic and progressive political thought and through The Political Quarterly continue to observe and comment on British politics.
At the Grantham Research Institute and with CIFF I’m working on international and European climate change and economic policy and retain a close interest in energy and climate policy in the UK.
The site includes my biographical details and a list of my writing and publications, recent and older.
I’m always grateful to receive feedback and comments, and information on interesting ideas and initiatives in my fields. My contact details are also here.
I post occasionally on Twitter @michaelujacobs.
