Muhamad Ramdan Andri Gunawan Wibisana, S.H., LL.M., Ph.D
I was born in Garut, West Java, on November 3rd, 1972. I am married to Yulistiyanti Esthi Widiyastuti, and have a daughter named Alexandra Maiorem Levitsa Vidyandhari Wibisana.
I graduated from the Faculty of Law, Universitas Indonesia in 1998, from Master Program on Law and Economics, Utrecht University, the Netherlands in 2002, and from Doctoral Program, the Faculty of Law, Maastricht University also in the Netherlands in 2008. My research interests cover environmental law, risk regulation, climate change law, and the economic analysis of law.
I've joined the Faculty of Law, UI, since 1998. Initially, I only gave lectures on environmental law for undergraduate students. This subject focuses on how environmental management is addressed in the Indonesian legal system. This subject covers a wide range of issues, such as the principles of environmental law, environmental licenses, institutional set up for environmental management, civil liability for environmental pollution, and administrative and criminal sanctions for environmental pollution.
In addition to environmental law, I also give lectures on administrative law (for undergraduate students), especially on the issues of government's legal acts, theories of bureaucracy, theories of public policy, administration of development, and good governance.
In the last four years, I also give lectures on international environmental law (for undergraduate and master students), economic analysis of law (for undergraduate students), environmental law (for master students), and writing techniques for a dissertation (for doctoral students).
From 2008-2010 I conducted a post-doctoral research funded by the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences. From October until December 2011 I gave lectures on the Economics of Public Law at the European Master in Law and Economics (EMLE) Program, the Faculty of Law, Erasmus University, the Netherlands.
In 2013 I was granted a scholarship from the Fulbright Senior Research Program. For this purpose, From October 2013 until April 2014, I conducted research on REDD and climate change law at the Center for Climate Change Law, Columbia Law School.
Currently, I am writing two articles on climate change law in Indonesia and compensation for the victims of Lapindo mudflow disaster in Sidoarjo. The two articles will contribute to a book, which I co-edit with Prof. Michael Faure (Maastricht University). The book has been published by Edward Elgar.
