Dr Andrew Judge
- Lecturer - International Relations (Politics)
Andrew Judge joined the School of Social and Political Sciences in 2016. Prior to coming to Glasgow, he worked for the University of Strathclyde and European Court of Auditors. He was awarded his PhD from the University of Strathclyde in 2012.
My research is at the intersection of International Relations, Security Studies, Energy Studies and Learning and Teaching. There are three main questions which animate my work:
- Why (should) people learn about Politics and International Relations?
- Why do some political concerns come to be regarded as security problems and what are the political effects of this 'securitisation' of politics and policy?
- How can we accelerate a global energy transition while ensuring both justice and security?

The implications of Brexit for UK crisis governance: The cases of health and energy security
I am interested in supervising PhD students in the broad areas of International Relations, Security Studies, Energy Studies and Learning and Teaching. I am particularly interested in projects in the following areas:
Learning and Teaching of Politics and International Relations
- Teaching as a form of knowledge (re)production
- Examinations of learning and teaching practice within Politics and IR courses and programmes
- Political literacy and the figure of the 'active and informed citizen'
- Role of discourses, perceptions, identities and practices in (de)constructing energy issues as security concerns
- Relationship between energy security and energy justice
- Energy crisis management
- Macro-level effects of (de)securitising multiple issues
- Application of alternative methodological approaches to the study of (de)securitisation
- The securitisation of energy or climate change
Energy Policy and Politics
- Scottish, UK or EU energy and climate policy
- EU relations with producer countries
- International dimensions of the energy transition
