Research interests

Martin's current research interests lie primarily in the areas of European Union and International Environmental Law, notably in relation to law enforcement. 

Martin has recently published two books in the field of environmental law enforcement. Specifically, he has completed a monograph focusing on international legal issues relating to this subject in Enforcement of International Environmental Law: Challenges and Responses at the International Level (Routledge 2019). 

This book complements his second edition monograph Enforcement of European Union Environmental Law: Legal Issues and Challenges (Routledge 2015, 2017). The latter monograph examines the subject of European Union (EU) environmental law enforcement by providing a detailed account of the various legal arrangements at EU level that may be used for the purpose of upholding EU environmental norms and assesses the practical impact of those arrangements. It also draws in part from his work as a legal administrator within the Environment Directorate-General of the European Commission.


Martin's teaching responsibilities span across European Union Law, International Environmental Law, International Trade and the Environment and Competition Law in Transnational Context.


Martin is open to considering acting as supervisor to postgraduate research students in the fields of EU law, as well as international and European environmental law.
