Description

Climate change is one of the most pressing issues on the policy agenda today and the courts are emerging as new “battlefields in climate fights”. Lawsuits addressing measures relevant to climate change, such as the expansion of airports, the reliance on coal-powered energy production and the destruction of the habitats of endangered species, are increasingly apparent on the dockets of both international and domestic courts. This series of panel discussions will bring together leading scholars and practitioners from around the globe to explore the extent of mobilization of the law to address climate change, the factors that contribute to a docket that includes climate lawsuits and the impact of climate change litigation on policy, corporate behaviour, media portrayals and public perceptions of the issue.
