Description

'Delivering on Global Environmental Justice: The Promises of Benefit-sharing' The paper aimed to stimulate a discussion on whether and to what extent the legal concept of benefit-sharing may contribute to the multi-disciplinary exploration that is ongoing within the University of Edinburgh of what global justice means and how it can be achieved. The paper illustrated the premises, key research questions and some very preliminary findings of the BENELEX project with a view to facilitating a participatory identification of actual and potential links to the debate on global justice and other ongoing research at the University of Edinburgh by participants in the event. The comments provided by Prof. Christine Bell (Law) and Prof. Tim Hayward (SPS), who acted as discussants, and by other participants will contribute to further develop the conceptual framework of the BENELEX project. Event organised by Global Justice Academy and the Constitutional Law Centre of Edinburgh Law School.
