Profesor agregado Ramón y Cajal - ON LEAVE


Charles Roger is an Associate Professor and Ramón y Cajal Research Fellow at the Institut Barcelona d'Estudis Internacionals (IBEI). His research explores the transformations occurring in our system of global governance and how these are reshaping our ability to address cross-border problems. Substantively, it has been concerned with the dynamics of formal, informal, and transnational institutions operating in the fields of climate change, international trade, global finance, and antitrust.

Charles is the author of The Origins of Informality: Why the Legal Foundations of Global Governance are Shifting, and Why It Matters (Oxford University Press, 2020) and a co-author of Transnational Climate Change Governance (Cambridge University Press, 2014), which was named runner-up for the International Studies Association’s Harold and Margaret Sprout Award in 2015. His research has also been published in a range of academic journals, including Global Environmental Politics, International Interactions, International Studies Quarterly, Journal of Conflict Resolution, and Review of International Organisations.

In addition to being a co-convenor of the Barcelona Workshop on Global Governance, Charles is a co-editor (with Prof. Maryam Deloffre) of the Frontiers of Global Governance book series published by McGill-Queens University Press. Finally, he has also worked with the United Nations and other organizations in various roles, including as a member of the UN High-Level Expert Group on Climate Change, Energy and Low-Carbon Development and as a contributing author of the Fifth Assessment Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).
