Welcome ... the pages of the Junior Professorship "Transformation towards Sustainable Energy Systems"!


We are an interdisciplinary team and work at the interface between law, climate and resource protection, planning and sustainable development. We are currently researching in particular into climate and resource protection in cities. In addition to strategic climate and resource protection planning in major international cities, we investigate the integration of cities in polycentric environmental governance.

Other research topics are the legal steering of the energy transition in a multi-level governance system, the integration of environmental and climate protection in international trade law regimes as well as environmental and climate protection interests in judicial review procedures. Depending on the research question, we work with methods from law, social and environmental sciences, often in internationally comparative case studies.
