Interests / Engagements

Trained in international law, public policy and sustainable development, Professor Cordonier Segger works on the intersections of law, policy and governance related to climate change, biodiversity conservation, economic development and sustainability, with a focus on the interests of future generations and global justice. Building on her experience in treaty negotiations and implementation systems, including stakeholder consultation and engagement, her research focuses on how international law responds to global challenges on different levels. It combines doctrinal analysis and theory with empirical research and draws on law, politics, development studies and environmental management. Her present research focuses on international law on climate change; sustainable development in global and regional trade, investment and financial treaties; legal preparedness for the green economy; international legal aspects of sustainable use of biodiversity and natural resources; and questions of law, governance and inter-actional regimes.

She serves as Editor of the Cambridge University Press Series on Implementing Treaties on Sustainable Development and on the Editorial Boards of several law journals including the Cambridge Journal of International Law and the McGill Journal of Sustainable Development Law. She is also chair of the World Bank Law Justice and Development Forum’s Thematic Working Group on Environment and Natural Resources Law, and Rapporteur of the International Law Association’s Committee on Sustainable Development of Natural Resources. She is a Member of the Board of the International Law Association (Canadian Branch), the UK Trust for Sustainable Living, the Hon Judge CD Gonthier Memorial Commission and the Sustainable Development Solutions Network of Canada; chairs the Future Board of Bit Bio (a biomedical firm) and the International Law on Sustainable Development Partnership under the auspices of the UN Commission on Sustainable Development; is a Councillor of the World Future Council, and lectures in several university law faculties including the University of Victoria and the University of Chile. She speaks six languages, and divides her time between Cambridge, Canada and Switzerland.

Prof Cordonier Segger also provides capacity-building, legal advice and technical assistance to strengthen implementation of international treaties on sustainable development to the United Nations and through the UN and CISDL, to governments in Africa, Asia Pacific and the Americas. She previously served as Senior Legal Expert in Sustainable Economic Development and Head of the Economic Growth and Trade Department with the International Development Law Organization (IDLO) in Rome, Italy; as Senior Legal Advisor to the Presidency of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP) in Bonn, Germany; as General Counsel to the Secretariat of the Ramsar Convention on Wetlands of International Importance near Geneva, Switzerland; as Senior Director of Research, Sustainable Prosperity, A/Director of International Affairs, Natural Resources Canada and Senior Manager of Governance and Stakeholder Relations, Environment and Climate Change Canada in Ottawa, Canada.

She holds a DPhil in International Law (University of Oxford, Exeter College); an MEM (full honours, Yale, with a specialisation in Law, Policy & Economics), a BCL and an LLB (distinction, McGill University, Faculty of Law); and a BA Hons (distinction, top honours, University of Victoria & Carleton University, Canada, with a specialisation in Interdisciplinary Studies).
