Research Topic

I have been carrying out my research in the legal system on Multilateral Environmental Agreements such as Kyoto Protocol and Convention on Biological Diversity. Now, the main subject of my study is International Sustainable Development Law. I am interested in how the sovereign States are trying to fill the gap between ideal and reality to secure global interests for the whole international community including global environmental protection and human rights for future-generations.
