  • the intersection between law and science and law and language, especially in the field of environmental law.

Potential students are invited to contact Dr Cavoski via email to discuss their research proposals prior to submitting official applications.

Research

Dr Cavoski's principal research interests are in the field of environmental law and EU law, including certain aspects of public international law. Her research agenda is inter-disciplinary and explores the intersection of law and other disciplines, in particular politics, science, public policy and language. She is also particularly interested in the comparative experiences in Western Balkans countries as they undergo the accession process in environmental law and policy. Related to the accession process are issues of legal translation in the EU and how language is used to translate different legal cultures.
