Dutkanberoštumit

My most immediate research interests are located at the intersection of critical theory, law and ecology, with particular focus on international environmental law and climate justice.. I am particularly interested in genealogy as a method of critical legal analysis, and in biopolitics as a theoretical register for reading environmental law.
At the same time, I am increasingly interested in the concept of the commons (in both legal and political philosophical terms). My postdoc project focuses on global commons (broadly construed) with a special focus on biodiversity in marine areas beyond national jurisdiction and marine genetic resources.
