Current international laws are inadequate
Current international laws are inadequate to protect the oceans and the planet. A law against ecocide and the principle of universal jurisdiction are the missing factors that can address this problem. Criminal accountability for environmental and climate-related crimes also addresses wider issues of climate justice beyond economic remedies. The workshop, convened by INTERPRT brings together leading practitioners from the field to examine emerging legal concepts and cases around ecocide, universal jurisdiction, and nature as a legal subject in a Pacific region context.
This is a workshop for tertiary students. Please email us at NTUCCAEducati[email protected] to register.
