Marie Curie Research Fellow at Universitat Pompeu Fabra
Lela Mélon has a legal and economics background and is currently a Marie Curie Research Fellow at the Pompeu Fabra University in Barcelona. She is specialized in EU law, with a main focus on corporate law and sustainability, on which she published the book Shareholder Primacy and Global Business (Routledge 2018). She is currently researching policy coherence for sustainability at the EU level, focusing on corporate law policies as well as the issue of strategic use of public procurement. She is a member of several EU level working group on public procurement and corporate law policy proposals to the EU for sustainable business and has delivered training and presentations on these topic issues across Europe. Besides being active in the academic field, she created and implemented a three-step systemic approach towards sustainability, which entailed the insertion of separate sustainable corporate law course in academic curricula and a simultaneous sustainable revision of the existing and well established academic curricula in economics and law.
