Areas of interest
Marie conducts research and teaching in global law and disasters, with a particular focus on international lawmaking, disaster risk reduction, and global security. Her current research explores the role of (international) law in creating and addressing disaster risk, including questions around vulnerability and natural, human-made, and biological hazards, as well as the inclusion of vulnerable and marginalised persons in law- and decision making processes. Her recent monograph Publicity in International Lawmaking: Covert Operations and the Use of Force (Cambridge University Press, 2020) interrogates the various processes and actors in the development and interpretation of international law through the lens of covert operations.
