I am a lawyer and political scientist interested in international relations. I currently teach at the University of Lausanne.

On my academic homepage you can find a full cv, a list of publications, and an overview of my current research projects.

My main research areas (on which I run separate blogs) are international (economic) law (with a special emphasis on Switzerland) and international legal developments relating to sexual orientation, gender identity and expression as well as sex characteristics (SOGIESC).

Just published: European Yearbook of International Economic Law (EYIEL) 2019

Just published: European Yearbook of International Economic Law (EYIEL) 2019 (edited by Andreas R Ziegler (UNIL) / Marc Bungenberg, Markus Krajewski, Christian Tams, Jörg Terhechte)

Tweet by Publisher

Volume 10 of the EYIEL focusses on the relationship between transnational labour law and international economic law on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the International Labour Organisation (ILO). As one of the oldest UN Agencies, the ILO has achieved considerable progress with respect to labour rights and conditions. The contributions to EYIEL Volume 10 assess these achievements in light of current and future challenges. The ILO’s core instruments and legal documents are analysed and similarly the impact labour standards have on trade and investment agreements. 

In its regional section, EYIEL 10 addresses recent developments in the US and the EU, including the US’ trade policy strategy towards China as well as the reform of the NAFTA. In its part on institutions, EYIEL 10 focusses inter alia on the role of the rule of law in relation to current practices of the International Monetary Fund and of the WTO’s Appellate Body as an international court. Furthermore, it provides an overview of current cases before the WTO. Finally, the volume entails a section with review essays on recently published books in the field of international economic law and international investment law.

Register now for the CAS "Regulation of Global Sport" (including my course on "Human rights in global sport" on 11 June 2020)

Neighbouring so many global sport organisations and situated in the “Olympic Capital City”, the Faculty of Law, Criminal Justice and Public Administration of the University of Lausanne proposes with partners from 2020, a new executive education certificate in the Regulation of Global sport.

In the 20th century sport has evolved from a passion for a few gentlemen to a global phenomenon involving millions of men and women as practitioners, spectators and/or consumers. In the 21st century sport is fully globalised and requires ever increasing amount of regulation that is both progressive and adaptable.

Domestic (hard) laws are to be considered alongside transnational sporting rules (soft laws). Challenges of global sport such as integrity, credibility and sustainability require the close cooperation of many stakeholders: national and international sports organisations, the local, national and international public sector, NGOs, and commercial entities (sponsors, broadcasters, network providers, event organisers). The ecosystem of global sport is more and more complex and requires a good understanding of its legal and geopolitical dimensions, as well as the multi-faceted challenges it faces.

This new certificate is organised around three consecutive modules, each under the responsibility of one of the schools of the Faculty of Law, Criminal Justice and Public Administration of the University of Lausanne:

  • The ecosystem of global sport
  • Laws of global sport
  • Challenges in global sport

Each module is composed of six full days of teaching under the responsibility of a UNIL professor who can invite guest lecturers and lead group work activities. The teaching is in English. Participants are encouraged to study and present at the end of the course a case of global sport regulation in order to obtain the certificate of advanced studies attached to the course.

Objectives

  • to know the different global sport stakeholders, their autonomy and their network governance, and the ecosystem in which they take part
  • to understand the global sporting regulations based on domestic, European and international (hard) laws, and/or transnational sporting rules (soft laws),
  • to reflect upon the possible evolution of global sport regulations thanks to the models and current issues presented in the course.

Teaching methods

Each teaching day will be devoted to a precise theme. Participants will be asked to make presentations during classes and to prepare for these course days by reading selected texts. Group work is also planned as a part of each teaching day.

Target audience

The programme is intended for participants who have a first university degree in a relevant field, or who manage (units of) global sport organisations and are faced with the challenges of global sport involving domestic (hard) laws and transnational sporting codes (soft laws). The CAS ReGS prepares its participants to become highly skilled experts and managers of global sport in multinational companies, international organisations, law firms, courts, NGOs and academia. A few seats are reserved for university graduates in career transition with relevant profiles and foreign participants who follow the Master in International Business Law.

Stop à la haine ! Le 9 février 2020, nous voterons sur l’extension de la norme anti-raciste au critère de l’orientation sexuelle

« L’incitation à la haine n’est pas une expression d’opinion – elle tue et stigmatise. »
Andreas R. Ziegler, Professeur à l’école de doit de l’Université de Lausanne

Le 9 février 2020, nous votons sur l’extension de la norme anti-raciste au critère de l’orientation sexuelle. Il s’agit d’obtenir une protection des lesbiennes, gays et bisexuel*le*s contre la haine, le dénigrement et la discrimination. 

En Suisse aujourd’hui, celui ou celle qui lance un appel à la haine et au dénigrement contre les lesbiennes, gays et bisexuels*les en tant que groupe, ou discrimine des personnes lesbiennes, gays ou bisexuels*les ne peut pas être poursuivi. Grâce à l’extension de la norme, il sera possible de lutter contre le dénigrement des lesbiennes, gays et bisexuel*le*s – tout comme il est déjà interdit aujourd’hui de lancer un appel à la haine sur la base de la religion ou de la couleur de peau.
