Attributing responsibility for the impacts of climate Change: the role of human rights law. Lessons from the carbon Majors petition

Activity: Talk or presentation typesOral presentation


On 7 and 8 June 2018, the Asia-Pacific Centre for Environmental Law (APCEL, National University of Singapore) co-hosted a climate change litigation scholarship workshop with Yale Law School.

During the workshop, researchers explored the role of the courts in adjudicating climate change, including how courts might determine responsibility for mitigation and adaptation, or liability for climate-related harms. Researchers presented papers covering different perspectives of climate litigation, including human rights based cases, options for private law litigation, attributing responsibility for the impacts of climate change, and different approaches and barriers to climate litigation within Asia and the Pacific.
