7th Thessaloniki Summer Courses on “Climate Change and International Law”

28 June-7 July, 2022

Thessaloniki, Greece

 

The Koufa Foundation for the Promotion of International and Human Rights Law is pleased to announce the 7th Thessaloniki Summer Courses on “Climate Change and International Law”. The Summer Course will focus on the international law responses to climate change. The complex phenomenon of climate change upends many constants of international law and calls for innovative solutions. Its unprecedented traits as a global threat, where scientific knowledge continuously evolves, its institutional arrangements and the multiplicity of actors involved in climate change governance have put a strain on international law and led to bold and groundbreaking normative developments, such as the principles of adaptation, mitigation and non-regression, the common but differentiated responsibilities, the emissions’ trade and the concept of nationally determined contributions and how their implementation can be monitored. The Summer Course will approach the evolving climate change regime and will also highlight the impact of climate change on other special fields of international law.
