In cooperation with UNEP, the International Association of Judges (IAJ), IUCN World Commission on Environmental Law (WCEL), the International Council of Environmental Law (ICEL) and the European Union Forum of Judges for the Environment (EUFJE)

The event will be an immersive one-day Dialogue that seeks to facilitate knowledge exchange between judges and interdisciplinary climate experts, and to build the capacity of judges so that they may better grasp and resolve the proliferating set of climate change disputes. In this way, the GJIE and CHRGJ seek to contribute to the development of jurisprudence and best practices in the environmental law field.

With this in mind, the Dialogue will focus on four key and timely areas of scientific and jurisprudential climate developments: 

(I) Global Overview of Climate Jurisprudence: Cases, Doctrines, and Remedies, 

(II) Climate Science, Ethics and the Law, 

(III) Emerging Legal Doctrines at the Intersection Between Climate Law and International Human Rights, and 

(IV) Relevant Upcoming Climate Law Developments.
