Studying at Cambridge



Research is the core activity of C-EENRG. With a broad focus on the governance of environmental transitions, understood as environment-driven societal transformations, our research looks at numerous questions at the intersection environment, energy and natural resource governance. Over the years, C-EENRG members have pursued diverse research portfolios on questions such as environmental governance and international economic law, the principles of international environmental law, the impact of conservation initiatives on biodiversity and livelihoods, the law governing energy transitions, the food-energy-water nexus, the impact of EU law on planning regulation, the impact of intellectual property rights on environmental governance, global climate negotiations, global biodiversity governance or the role sovereign wealth funds, to name but a few.
