Dr Elisa Morgera, Senior Lecturer in Global Environmental Law, has been appointed Adjunct Professor of International and EU Environmental Law at the University of Eastern Finland (UEF), in Joensuu, Finland.
As part of this honorary, ongoing appointment, she has been invited to contribute to postgraduate teaching in the areas of international biodiversity law and corporate environmental accountability.
The appointment follows a double peer-review process of Dr Morgera's 10 most significant publications.
One of the reviewers, Prof Nicolas de Sadeleer (University Saint-Louis, Brussels), pointed to the breadth, rigour and innovative character of her research, as well as its impact on practice. The second reviewer, Prof. Elina Pirjatanniemi (Åbo Akademi University, Turku), emphasised Dr Morgera's ambitious agenda to identify and analyse interlinkages between different legal regimes, blending pragmatism and conceptual complexity in addressing a variety of topical challenges in international and EU environmental law.
The appointment follows two years of ad hoc cooperation with the University of Eastern Finland (UEF), including contributions to the course on multilateral environmental agreements that UEF organises together with the UN Environment Programme and knowledge-exchange events for the European Forest Institute and Finnish Ministry of the Environment.
Dr Morgera is the Director of the LLM Programme in Global Environment and Climate Change Law.
