Michal Nachmany has been leading on the Global Climate Legislation Study since 2013. The Study is a review of climate legislation in 99 countries, together responsible for 93% of global greenhouse gas emissions.
Michal’s doctoral research at the department of Geography and Environment at the London School of Economics explores the global diffusion of climate change policies, focusing on the dynamics of decision making at the micro-level, and on the contribution of global networks to advancement of policies.
Previously, Michal worked at the Samuel Neaman Institute for National Policy Research, an environmental think tank in Israel, where, among others, she served on the professional advisory board for Israel’s national greenhouse gas mitigation plan, and was involved in drafting of environmental laws and policies. Prior to that, Michal headed competitive intelligence projects for multinational companies in the private sector.
Michal has an MA (cum laude) in Energy Policy and Management from the University of Haifa, an LLB in Law and an MBA (specialising in finance) from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.
Her research interests focus on the dynamics between the national and the international policy spheres – mainly policy diffusion and the impact of national legislation on the international climate change regime.
