Linnéa Nordlander

Linnéa is a PhD fellow at the Centre for International Law and Governance at the Faculty of Law, University of Copenhagen. Her research interests centre on the intersection of international human rights and climate change law. Her PhD thesis explores loss and damage under the international climate change regime, examining the extent to which the application of a human rights perspective can elucidate the legal implications of the inclusion of loss and damage in article 8 of the Paris Agreement.  Beyond her thesis research, she takes a keen research interest in how legal frameworks in the Nordics are adapted to dealing with the adverse impacts of climate change on the rights of indigenous groups in the region, as well as human rights and climate change litigation.

A human rights lawyer by training, Linnéa holds an LLM in International Human Rights Law from Lund University and an LLB (first-class honours) in English Law from the University of Dundee. Prior to joining the Faculty of Law at the University of Copenhagen, Linnéa worked with programme and research assistance at the Raoul Wallenberg Institute for Human Rights and Humanitarian Law in Lund, Sweden.
