Presented by The Refugee Hub and The Centre for Environmental Law and Global Sustainability, with financial support from the Changing Orders project (CIPS)
More than ever, countries around the world are confronted with the question of how law and policy should respond to the needs of individuals displaced due to climate change and other forms of environmental degradation. What forms of protection are available, or should be available? What is the role of advocates and the legal profession in securing justice and solutions for those who experience these forms of displacement? This workshop will examine these questions in the context of Canada and France.
Presentations in English and French with simultaneous interpretation throughout the event.
