Dr. Emily Jones, Senior Lecturer in Law at the University of Essex, alongside her colleague, Dr. Marie Aronsson-Storrier, Lecturer in Law at the University of Reading, has been successfully awarded just under £5000 by the Modern Law Review to run a seminar on the theme of International Law and Transformation: Environmental Justice.

The seminar will be held at the University of Essex in May 2022 and will bring a series of experts together to discuss key issues in environmental law.

It will centre around the ability to seek transformative environmental justice by working with and through international environmental law.

Key topics of discussion will include:

  • the epistemic basis of international environmental law;
  • recent attempts to transform international environmental law such as the ongoing negotiations to create a Global Pact for the Environment or the recent recognition by the Human Rights Council of a human right to a healthy environment; and
  • the application of the law in case studies, including in crises and disasters.

Further details will be announced in due course, so keep an eye on our blog for updates.
