My research areas concern mainly law of armed conflict, international environmental law and the use of force. In my PhD thesis, I looked at how environmental protection during armed conflict could be strengthened by allowing international environmental law inform the application of law of armed conflict. Recently I commenced a post-doctoral research project, in which I examine the use of international law in regard to peacebuilding activities aiming at restoring and protecting the environment. The project studies the practice of stakeholders acting on the behalf of the international community to protect the environment by taking over state functions in developing states in the aftermath of armed conflict (post-conflict). It also looks into the tensions that may arise in such practice between the global, national and local stakeholders participating in peacebuilding.
