Judith van Leeuwen

Wageningen University

Dr. Judith van Leeuwen’s field of interest and expertise lies in the changing role of public and private actors, specifically corporate actors, in global environmental and marine governance. Her research looks into how corporate actors ,while advancing in terms of corporate environmental management, not only create corporate environmental policies, but also increasingly participate in multi-stakeholder initiatives. These multi-stakeholder initiatives in turn change architectures of global environmental governance, dispersing authority and steering over multiple actors and in multiple directions. Dr. van Leeuwen’s research contributes to understanding how corporate actors increasingly become involved in global environmental and marine governance, and how this influences governing efforts and effects. She has published on these topics with regard to governing international shipping, offshore oil and gas developments, ecosystem based management and the European regional seas.
