Research questions

  • Natural Resources and Sustainable Development
  • Ocean Governance
  • International Organizations/ Regimes
  • Indigenous Rights/ Indigenous Knowledge


My current research focuses on the question of how international institutions and norms influence the socio-economic and environmental challenges of a worldwide increasing exploitation of natural resources. In particular, I study how international institutions such as the Arctic Council contribute to an increase in political influence of non-state actors (e.g. indigenous communities), and to what extend the political participation and the knowledge of these actors can foster the sustainable governance of marine resources and ecosystems.
