Sanja Bogojević is Fellow and Associate Professor of Law at Lady Margaret Hall and the Faculty of Law. Prior to joining Oxford Law Faculty, she was Associate Professor (‘Docent’) of Environmental Law at Lund University, to which she remains affiliated.
Bogojević read Law at King’s College London and Passau Universität (LLB with German Law), as well as at the Collège d’Europe (LLM) before completing her DPhil at Corpus Christi College, Oxford. She has held visiting research/teaching positions at the Max Planck Institute for Collective Goods; the New York University School of Law; the University of New South Wales; the UC Berkeley School of Law; Riga Graduate School of Law; the University of Belgrade Law Faculty; and the University of Milan.
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 spheres, covering the role of markets in environmental law, the greening of procurement law, environmental rights adjudication, and climate change litigation. Recent publications include Discretion in EU Public Procurement Law (co-ed, Hart 2019; paperback 2020), which was applauded for opening up a debate on discretion between internal market-, environmental law-, and public procurement specialists (Roberto Caranta, CML Rev 2020, 1328); and Environmental Rights in Europe and Beyond (co-ed, Hart 2018; paperback 2020), which was endorsed as a book that ‘should not only be read, but be studied by young law students – but then again also by all those to whom this call for improvement of environmental protection through law is addressed: academics, NGOs, practising environmental lawyers and judges.’ (Ludwig Krämer, CML Rev 2019, 896). On the basis of her book Emissions Trading Schemes: Market, States and Law (Hart 2013), she was awarded the 2016 Nils Klim Prize for her outstanding research contribution to environmental law- scholarship and ‘the originality, the creativity, the prolific output and the many scholarly interventions that Sanja Bogojević’s research has led to’. Her work in European law includes Great Debates in EU Law (Macmillian 2021, with Jeremias Adams-Prassl).
Bogojević is currently working on research projects exploring legal frictions involving infrastructure projects in relation to the Belt and Road Initiative, and oil-refinery expansion in Sweden, as well as on the interlinks between populism, the rule of law and environmental protection.
She is the Analysis Editor for the Journal of Environmental Law, and a board member of Diritto Processuale Amministrativo.
- DOI: http://dx.doi.org/10.1017/S2047102520000278Infrastructure is often viewed through global and promotional lenses, particularly its role in creating market-connectivity. Infrastructure, however, is heavily dependent on and constitutive of local space, where ‘frictions’, or disputes emerge. Drawing on the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) as a case study, we examine in detail two cases of BRI-related climate change litigation – one in Pakistan, and one in Kenya – that shed light on the frictions arising from what is deemed the most significant transnational infrastructure project of our time. In doing so, this study demonstrates how infrastructure can be made more visible in environmental law and how environmental law itself provides an important mechanism for stabilizing frictions in local spaces where infrastructure runs.
