He is passionate about making things that we envisage in policy happen in real life. He has a strong interest in policy analysis, organizational theory, implementation studies and especially in the application of principles and techniques derived from these domains for the purpose of the environmental policy. In policy analysis, he attaches particular attention to the role of public administration and international organizations as well as to the importance of organizational and inter-organizational processes. In this context of paramount significance seem to him the activities of the United Nations System and its specialized agencies including the International Maritime Organization which designs and implements global measures to prevent and control marine pollution caused by ships.
