Dr Gravey's research focuses on the relationship between policy change and shocks to policy-making systems.  This is reflected in two main areas of research. First, environmental policy dismantling in the European Union – and its links to further European (dis)integration. Second, having investigating how the EU has shaped UK environmental & agricultural policy and governance, my current work focuses on the potential policy and governance changes linked to the re-patriation of EU law in the UK and the devolved regions after Brexit.
