Climate Change Litigation at the European Court of Human Rights

21st March 2022, 12:00am - 12:00am , Zoom

More and more people are turning to national and international courts to challenge their governments' inaction on global warming. The first applications have also arrived at the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg (ECtHR). What hurdles do these applications have to overcome before the Court can pass judgments on the merits? What role can human rights play in the fight against global warming? Are national and international courts the right forums for such far-reaching decisions?

The Law & NCD and the International Law and Human Rights Units at the University of Liverpool in collaboration with the European Public Health Association Law and Pubic Health Section, and the UK Faculty of Public Health and other partners are organizing this important and timely two-hour online seminar on Climate Change Litigation at the European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR).
