Personal profile

Research interests


'In 2015, the court in The Hague ordered the Dutch state to reduce CO2 emissions in 2020 with at least 25% compared to 1990. It was a landmark ruling that drew worldwide news coverage. That shouldn't be surprising: it raises all kinds of questions about the changing role of the judge. Traditionally, the regulation of risks is the domain of politics, but with these kinds of rulings the judge is moving towards taking over legislative tasks. Incredibly interesting, also from an international perspective. That's also one of the topics I'm researching: the question of how national judges relate to international courts such as the European Court of Justice in Luxembourg. The world is changing and the law changes with it.'
