SECOND CONTEMPORARY CHALLENGES OF INTERNATIONAL ENVIRONMENTAL LAW CONFERENCE
The aim of the scientific conference is to critically asses the challenges posed by environmental protection at the international level and address them through the provision of creative international environmental law solutions. The conference, which addresses one of the most important topics for the future of humankind, is set up as an interdisciplinary debate between environmental scientists and legal experts. It will thus offer a new forum for debate and innovative thinking in search of new international environmental law solutions.
The conference participants will address the areas of climate change, forest, sea and biodiversity protection, including issues of sustainable development, human right to a clean environment, migration of populations, state responsibility, the role of non-state actors,… as well as the importance of international legal regulation of these issues. The presenters at the conference are the leading international experts in the field, as well as young researchers and doctoral candidates.
The intention of the conference is to establish a new platform for discussions on international environmental law, as the issues of international environmental law are seldom addressed and answered in such a comprehensive and interdisciplinary manner.
The conference is the second conference in the series of biannual international environmental law conferences at the Faculty of Law, University of Ljubljana.
