About Johanna Gipperth

Doctoral student in international law.

My thesis project is called Human Rights Justifications in the Anthropocene. The project aims to investigate how the EU's partner states use human rights to justify their climate policy actions and decisions. The doctoral project is part of the EU HORIZON-funded project HRJust and started during spring 2023.

My main supervisor is Ester Herlin-Karnell. Assistant supervisor is Maria Grahn-Farley.

Since I graduated with a LL.M. from Gothenburg University in 2021, I have worked as a project manager at The Swedish Institute for the Marine Environment. In addition to my law degree, I have a bachelor's degree in International Relations from King's College London.
