Dobson has a BA in Politics from the University of Reading and D.Phil in Politics from St John's College, Oxford. His best-known work is entitled Green Political Thought, in which he argues that 'ecologism' is a political ideology in its own right. His most recent monograph is Citizenship and the Environment (Oxford University Press, 2005), and he co-edited two other books on environmental/ecological citizenship in 2005. In 2006 he co-edited Political Theory and the Ecological Challenge (Cambridge University Press) with Robyn Eckersley.
He ran as a Green Party candidate in the 2005 general election, but was not elected. He also ran in the local elections in 2006, contesting the Keele ward, and came within a handful of votes of unseating the leader of the Liberal Democrats. Dobson is credited as the lead writer of the Green Party's 2010 general election manifesto.
He was made an Academician in the Academy of Social Sciences in February 2008. He was a founding editor of the international journal Environmental Politics, now in its 18th year. He serves as an academic member of the DEFRA advisory body, the Sustainable Development Research Network (SDRN), and is an advisor to the Government's Sustainable Development Commission.
