Global Environmental Law in Dialogue with the Judiciary: Insights from Courts around the World
The Centre for Sustainable Development Law and Policy (CSDLP) at Durham University Law School and the Global Policy Institute are delighted to offer this free lecture series.
2022 is the year of anniversaries of various significant international declarations and multilateral environmental agreements. These declarations and agreements address environmental issues at the global level and set forth fundamental principles and legally binding obligations of states.
These anniversaries include:
the Stockholm Declaration on the Human Environment of 1972
the Rio Declaration on Environment and Development of 1992
the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change of 1992
the Convention on Biological Diversity of 1992
and the Law of the Sea Convention of 1982.
The aim of the series is to:
explore issues that are addressed in these declarations and agreements
understand the developments that have taken place since these instruments were adopted
and to examine the role they have played in judicial decision-making around the world.
In a series of lectures, judges from around the world offer insights into the normative framework of Global Environmental Law from a variety of perspectives and jurisdictions.
This lecture series has been developed by Justice Brian Preston (Visiting Professor) and Professor Petra Minnerop (Professor of International Law).
Some lectures will be hybrid and others will be online only. In person events will be followed by a drinks reception.
