Dr. Yadin teaches and researches law and regulation, with an emphasis on soft regulatory approaches such as regulatory contracts and regulatory shaming. She has published two books and close to thirty articles and won several awards. Her recent projects explore regulatory climate shaming, soft law approaches to climate crisis mitigation, climate-washing and regulatory theory, and climate denial litigation. Her work on regulatory contracts was adopted into law in a precedential Supreme Court of Israel ruling on natural gas regulation, in which four Justices widely cited her first book. Her studies on eco-shaming and on regulatory shaming has influenced policies in Israel and abroad.
