About Hannes Lenk

A PhD candidate in international law, my research focus is above all in international investment law and arbitration, and EU external relations. The thesis project in particular focuses on the EU as an actor in investor-state dispute settlement proceedings. That includes, on the one hand, clarification on the relevant legal frameworks and, on the other, effects of EU participation on international investment law as a sub-system of public international law. The project deals, thus, with a range of topical questions concerning ongoing negotiations, such as TTIP with the US and CETA with Canada. Supervisors for the research project are Prof. Per Cramér and Prof. Christophe Hillion. Before commencing my research position at the University of Gothenburg in 2013, I worked briefly at the EU Commission in the Directorate General for Trade.

During my time as PhD candidate I have already published a number of articles in relevant journals, e.g. European Business Law Review and Transnational Dispute Management, as well as a book chapter (forthcoming) and two reports for the Swedish Institute for European Policy Studies (SIEPS). I am also on the editorial staff of the European Papers.  

I am teaching predominantly EU law both, on the undergraduate level as part of the international law course, and the advanced level in courses EU constitutional law and procedural EU law.
