Anna has had a long-time engagement with questions relating to gender, inequalities and human rights. She is the Founder and Editor in Chief of the Journal of Human Rights and the Environment and is Founder and Director of the Global Network for the Study of Human Rights and the Environment (GNHRE) – now the largest existing international network of leading scholars in the field, activists, policy makers, lawyers and NGOs dedicated to the transformation of thinking concerning the relationship between human rights and the environment. Anna’s research scholarship calls on insights from a range of disciplines despite being firmly located within a combination of critical legal theory and jurisprudence. She has a particular interest in the relationship between human rights and the environment, and in the theme of legal subjectivity, locating these in relation to contemporary globalization and to a central concern with the implications of the materiality of the living order. Anna is actively committed to finding productive links between forward-thinking and cutting-edge theoretical work and practical strategies and innovative models of social organization capable of addressing the stark patterns of injustice characterizing the contemporary world situation.
