Sanja Bogojević is Fellow and Associate Professor of Law at Lady Margaret Hall and the Faculty of Law. She 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 positions at the Max Planck Institute for Collective Goods; the New York University School of Law; the University of New South Wales and the UC Berkeley School of Law. Her research interest lies 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. To this end, she currently works on research projects exploring the role of markets in environmental law, the greening of procurement law, environmental aspects of the Belt and Road Initiative, as well as the adjudication of environmental rights. In 2016 she was awarded the Nils Klim Prize for her outstanding research contribution to environmental law- and emissions trading scholarship. She currently acts as the Analysis Editor for the Journal of Environmental Law.

  • S Bogojevic, 'Human rights of minors and future generations: Global trends and EU environmental law particularities' (2020) Review of European, Comparative & International Environmental Law
    DOI: 10.1111/reel.12345
    A growing global wave of climate change litigation is led by minors, relying on their human rights, as well as those of future generations against governments and their failure to take action on climate change. Such litigation is emerging also before the Court of Justice of the European Union, where the ambitiousness of the EU’s cli- mate change policies, embodied in the 2030 Climate and Energy Policy Framework, is challenged. This may suggest a possible ‘rights turn’ in EU climate change litiga- tion, where the use of rights claims intensifies and allows stakeholders traditionally excluded from decision making to raise their concerns in a judicial forum. This article explains why this trend has failed to materialize in the EU through an analysis of EU environmental law particularities. From this view, it shows the shortcomings of the 2030 Framework, and by drawing inspiration from successful enforcement of statu- tory obligations in EU air quality legislation, the article suggests how these may be remedied in future legislative action.

    In the wake of crises and “enlargement fatigue”, EU politics deprioritized enlargement. Recently, however, the Commission motioned a reinvigorated enlargement prospect for the Western Balkans, identifying Serbia and Montenegro as the front runners. This paper advises that in going forward, the EU should also look back at its five decades of enlargement. The article focuses on environmental protection – a key EU public policy – and the way in which it features in the ever-evolving accession conditions and accession acts. It emerges that environmental protection has been marginalized throughout EU’s enlargement history. Taking Serbia as a case study, it is shown that this is highly problematic, since environmental protection is linked to safeguarding the rule of law – an essential criterion for EU membership. The role of environmental protection in the EU’s enlargement policies should thus be reprioritized.

    Judicial dialogue, as enabled through preliminary reference, is a fundamental component of the EU judicial system. It allows the national courts to ask the Court of Justice (ECJ) questions of interpretation and validity of EU acts, thereby helping secure the coherence of EU law, as well as it safeguards judicial protection, especially for individual applicants who otherwise enjoy limited access to the ECJ. The way this dialogue maps out in practice, however, is far from straightforward. Examining preliminary references on environmental matters issued by the Swedish courts over a twenty-year period shows various dialogues taking place—interchanged, gapped, interrupted and silenced—each demonstrating a different response from the national courts in implementing the ECJ’s rulings. This finding raises pressing questions concerning the impact of preliminary rulings in the Member States, the relationship between the national and the EU courts, and whether judicial dialogues are effective guarantors of judicial protection.
