Ideas:
“  My research focuses on the international and national law applicable to the mitigation of climate change. I am currently working mainly on two questions: (1) whether and how environmental assessment procedures can help to mitigate climate change, and (2) whether and how litigation can foster enhanced action on climate change mitigation.  ”
