Dates: 6-7 May 2021

Sant’Anna School will host an important workshop on climate change litigation and human rights organized by Mariagrazia Alabrese, in conjunction with the European University Institute (Joanne Scott), the University of Stirling and the University of Eastern Finland (Annalisa Savaresi). It benefits from sponsorship by the British Academy and the Global Network for the Study of Human Rights and the Environment.

With participation from legal practitioners and scholars, the workshop is intended to:

  • Analyse the use of human rights arguments in the practice of climate change litigation
  • Take stock of lessons that may be learnt from successes and failures in extant case law
  • Draw general inferences on the role of human rights law in the context of climate change litigation
  • Identify future pathways to effectively use human rights arguments in climate change litigation
