Projektbeskrivelse:
Afhandlingen beskæftiger sig med EU-rettens betydning for de danske forvaltningsmyndigheders håndhævelse af miljølovgivningen. Formålet er navnlig at belyse, hvorledes EU-retten ændrer ved eller i øvrigt påvirker dansk rets almindelige regler for administrativt tilsyn og kontrol på miljøområdet, herunder ved sanktionering af lovovertrædelser. Afhandlingen vil inddrage perspektiver fra blandt andet hollandsk ret.

Projektbeskrivelse:

Projektet undersøger de retlige rammer for behandling af personoplysninger i intelligente energisystemer (smart grid og smart energy systems). Intelligente energisystemer etablerer interaktion mellem forbrugere og leverandører med det formål at tilpasse energisystemet til forbruget og omvendt. Udveksling af forsynings- og forbrugsdata fra samtlige producenter og forbrugere skal sikre realiseringen af det intelligente energinet som en del af løsningen på den grønne omstilling. Samtidig åbner nettene op for egen og kommerciel indsigt i individuelle forbrugsmønstre, som kan indeholde personoplysninger, der er beskyttet efter persondataforordningen. Projektet undersøger i lyset heraf, hvordan hensynet til at beskytte borgernes privatliv og personlige integritet konkret beskyttes overfor hensynet til en hensigtsmæssig udnyttelse af mulighederne for informations- og kommunikations teknologier i intelligente energisystemer.


Taking Rights of Nature and Human Rights Seriously

Project description:
Rights of nature are gaining traction. Several countries have adopted rights of nature laws (at constitutional, national, and local level) or recognised the rights of nature in court judgments. These laws and legal sources inter alia recognise that nature is a subject of the law, and, in certain cases, grant specific legal rights to nature. Born out of an Earth-centred or ecological paradigm, rights of nature (laws) present a fundamental challenge to the otherwise anthropocentric or human-centric system of law and governance.
Set against these developments, the PhD project studies the relationship(s) between the rights of nature and human rights in jurisdictions that recognise both categories of right-holders. Mindful that most legal and governance systems remain anthropocentric, individualistic and mechanistic in their very structure, the project will investigate what happens at the interface between the old paradigm (most existing individual human rights) and the new, ecological paradigm (the rights of nature). Questions to be explored include> When rights conflict (as they often do), whose rights prevail and under what circumstances? Is there a risk that the prevailing (anthropocentric) legal order will subsume and swallow the ecological one, rendering the rights of nature “mere rhetoric”? If so, what would it take for the ecological paradigm to penetrate the anthropocentric machinery of law?


Clarifying 'Loss and Damage': Scope, Implications, and Implementation Beyond Paris

Project description:

The PhD project aims to answer two research questions: “What are the legal implications of the new ‘loss and damage’ provision of the Paris Agreement? How can the implementation of the loss and damage provision deliver solutions for the most vulnerable countries?". In so doing, the project examines the conditions which have to be met in order for a climate change impact to be considered a loss and damage impact. In examining the potential for implementation, the project looks into the inter-relationship between loss and damage and other areas of international law and assesses available implementation options.
