Magali Dreyfus is a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Sustainable Urban Futures programme at UNU-IAS. Prior to joining UNU-IAS, she was a research scholar at the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA). Her research interests lie in the topics of multi-level governance and environment with a focus on climate change, sustainable development and the provision of public services in urban areas. She studies in particular the definition and implementation of regulatory tools and policies by local governments, and how, in so doing, they relate to upper level of governments, especially supranational (international and/or European).

At UNU-IAS, she works on the management of environmental risks in the cities and in particular on how local governments deal with climate change impacts. This research is supported by the AXA Research Fund support.

Dr Dreyfus holds an LLM from Paris Pantheon-Sorbonne University and received her PhD in Law from the European University Institute in Florence, Italy (2010). Her thesis dealt with the impact of European Law on the provision of local public services. In 2010-2012, she was awarded a JSPS fellowship and joined UNU-IAS.
