My PhD research discusses the evolution of the international regulatory framework of Just Transition within the context of climate conflicts. I specifically investigate how just transition framework intersect with transitional justice and human rights through a decolonial and ecosystem approaches.

"Navigating the intricate challenges and consequences of the natural-institutional climate transition remains crucial. This goes beyond witnessing the Anthropocene as a planetary shift to a new geological era. It encompasses also the complex socio-economic process of transitioning to net-zero societies while adapting to new planetary conditions. Examining this process through the lens of human dignity and peace becomes especially relevant in the face of "glocal" climate inequities and “glocal” disputes, where disparities between the Global North and South are unavoidable factors in the equation" (Camilo Cornejo, 2022, Research proposal).
