Loading Events

Climate change and the onset of events linked to extreme climatic weather may prompt the next global crisis. In a post-COVID context, this emphasizes the need to properly address emerging transnational environmental challenges and, at the same time, operate speedy energy transitions. Against this backdrop, the Conference focuses on the varieties of legal responses to global environmental problems and their impact on justice. As the climate, energy, and environmental justice, we understand that it refers to the concerns regarding the redistributive, restorative, and procedural issues raised by the challenges of making a transition to a more sustainable environment and how legal systems responded to it, whether from International law, EU law, or a multilegal system perspective described as Global law.
