Her research interests lie in Environmental Law and EU Law more broadly, and much of her work explores interlinks and dichotomies between private and public spheres in these two legal fields. This includes research on the role of markets in environmental law, the greening of procurement law, environmental rights adjudication, climate law, and the interlinks between climate action, populism and the the rule of law. On the basis of her book, Emissions Trading Schemes: Market, States and Law (Hart/Bloomsbury 2013), she was awareded the 2016 Nils Klim Prize for her 'outstanding contribution to the study of law' and the 'originality, the creativity, the prolific output and the many scholarly interventions that [her] research has led to'. Her work in European law includes Great Debates in EU Law (Blomsbury 2021, with Adams-Prassl), as well as Discretion in EU Public Procurement Law (co-ed, Hart 2019; paperback 2020), Environmental Rights in Europe and Beyond (co-ed, Hart 2018; paperback 2020), and The Internal Market Ideal: Essays in Honour of Stephen Weatherill (co-ed, OUP 2023).
Bogojević is currently involved in several large-scale research projects, including co-leading legal investigations as part of the UK's national research hub on greenhouse gas removal technologies (funded by UKRI); studying the constitutional implications of emergencies, and foremost the notion of a 'climate emergency' (funded by Marianne and Marcus Wallenberg Foundation); and phasing out coal along the Belt and Road (funded by the Research Grant Council of Hong Kong).
