“  Currently, I work on my PhD thesis 'Justitia, the People's Power and Mother Earth' in which I discuss the democratic legitimacy of judicial law-making in European private law cases on climate change, making use of a Habermasian understanding of democracy. Specific attention is paid to people in other nations, future generations and non-human entities.  ”
