Marlene’s research concentrates on international environmental law, climate change law and governance and human rights. Marlene’s approach to research is interdisciplinary and transnational in essence, with an emphasis on socio-ecological justice, climate litigation, corporate responsibility and global ‘green’ transformation issues. Her current research addresses the legal and political aspects related to new conceptualisations and governance practices for a ‘planetary society’, taking as an empirical case the Arctic region. Marlene holds a PhD from the University of Liverpool. Marlene works for the project A Planetary Approach to Global Arctic politics.
