Mario’s primary scholarly and teaching interests lie in the area of international law and organisations, with particular interest in critical legal theories, sustainable development and the resolution of international disputes. His current research focuses on the history of international environmental law, more specifically the relationship between early environmentalism and colonialism, and on the distribution of environmental costs, risks and responsibilities between the North and the South.

Mario would be willing/happy to supervise students working in the following areas: International Law, European Law, Immigration/Asylum Law, Comparative Public Law
