A prize has been awarded to Senior Lecturer in EU and International Law Dr Belen Olmos Giupponi.
The Organization of American States (OAS) selected Dr Giupponi as a prize-winner at a short essay contest on Environmental Rule of Law in the Americas.
OAS presented the award in collaboration with UN Environment, the World Commission on Environmental Law, and the International Union for Conservation of Nature.
The paper was co-authored with a colleague, who is a Professor of International Law and a national environmental court judge.
It discusses the influence of international law principals in domestic law and judicial decision making.
Dr Giupponi will explore the main findings with relevant decision makers at a conference hosted by the OAS.
