Om Dmitrii Kuznetsov

Doctoral student in public law. I specialise in comparative constitutional law, human rights, and international law. I have been working with national and international judiciary for about ten years. I taught classes on public international law and comparative constitutional law.

The topic of my doctoral research is “Separation of powers and the role of the judiciary in implementation of states’ environmental obligations”. The research seeks to answer questions emerging within the domain of implementation of the state’s climate obligations and environmental human rights. It also focuses on issues of vertical separation of competences between federations and their constituent entities, on the proliferation and effectiveness of specialised environmental tribunals, and the question of whether the judiciary is capable of being an effective power to make states fulfil their climate obligations, regardless of the political concerns.

Main supervisor is Ester Herlin-Karnell.
