The Courts, Climate Change, Migrant and Refugee Rights
How can courts shape the development of law related to the rights of refugees and migrants in response to global climate change? This event, jointly organized by IRLIG and MILIG and co-sponsored by the Global Strategic Litigation Council for Refugee Rights (GSLC), will explore the current state of international migration and refugee law and human rights applicable to those displaced by global climate change; how the law should evolve to meet the current mobility challenges; and practical avenues in international, regional, and national courts to facilitate the progressive development of the law for the protection of the rights of those moving in the context of climate change.
