Michael Faures core research is focused on environmental law and more particularly international environmental law and environmental criminal law. Research is also carried out from an economic analysis of law and more particularly accident law. Typically, the research is of a legal comparative or a legal economic nature and sometimes involves the international treaties in the research. The research often focuses on specific environmental problems such as sea water pollution by oil or nuclear accidents. In addition, research is also carried out on a broader level regarding diverse themes in the economic analysis of law (such as insurance, financial crisis, deposit guarantee system) and attention is also paid to the way in which legal rules influence people’s behaviour.
Michael Faure is haiwaimingshi (distinguished foreign professor) at the School of Law and Economics of the China University of Political Science and Law. Michael Faures has already given several lectures in the School of Law and Economics, facilitating the academic communication.
