Research interests


Kikelomo's research examines the legal and regulatory frameworks developing countries can adopt to ensure corporations actively participate in climate change mitigation in these countries. It challenges the entrenched concept of Responsive Regulation as the appropriate regulatory approach to tackle corporate non-involvement in environmental and social governance in developing countries and argues in favour of a problem-based regulatory approach with facilitative instruments built upon an interventionist foundation by governments in developing countries.

Kikelomo has published materials and a book chapter in recognised journals and has presented papers at academic conferences in the United Kingdom and Canada.


Other Areas of Research Interests are as follows-

Climate Change Law and Policy

Renewable Energy Law

Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR)/ Regulation

Environmental and Social Governance in Developing Countries
