Charles research explores the transformations occurring in our system of global governance and how these are shaping—for better or worse—our ability to address cross-border problems. Substantively, it focuses on informal and transnational institutions in the fields of climate change, international trade, finance, and antitrust.
Charles's recent books include The Origins of Informality: Why the Legal Foundations of Global Governance are Shifting, and Why It Matters (OUP, 2020) and Transnational Climate Change Governance (CUP, 2014; coauthored with Harriet Bulkeley et al.). His research has also been published in journals like Global Policy, International Interactions, International Studies Quarterly, International Studies Review, and the Review of International Organizations.
Previously, Charles was also Beatriu de Pinós Research Fellow at IBEI. Before joining IBEI, Charles was a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Toronto. He has also worked with the United Nations and other organizations in various consulting roles, including as a member of the UN High-Level Expert Group on Climate Change, Energy and Low-Carbon Development in Africa and as a contributing author of the Fifth Assessment Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).
