Polina Bochnekova Visiting Fellow

Polina Bochnekova is visiting scholar at Harvard Law School’s Brooks McCormick Jr. Animal Law & Policy Program (ALPP). She holds a double graduate degree from Yale University and École des Hautes études Commerciales de Paris and a Bachelor’s degree from the University College Roosevelt in the Netherlands. Between her studies, she worked in public and private sectors on sustainable agriculture, circular economy, waste management and plastic pollution, and researched corruption in the Russian banking system. Her academic interests lie in the intersection of business, policy and environment preservation, and she is engaged in animal rights studies and practice.

At ALPP, Polina will research how the Netherlands managed to build political, cultural and market power to start transitioning away from animal agriculture.
