CCLR Authors’ Webinar (1/2020): Trends in Global Climate Litigation (13th May, 10:30-12:00 CEST)

Courtrooms have become an important venue in recent years in the global fight against climate change. As civil society and affected communities increasingly seek to hold governments, corporations and investors to account for the climate crisis, important legal and policy questions remain to be addressed. In our first CCLR Authors’ Webinar, contributing authors to Issue 1/2020 will unravel some of these questions and discuss future developments related to compliance and climate litigation.

The webinar will be moderated by our CCLR Managing Editor Patrick Toussaint and there will be an opportunity for audience Q&A. Participation is free of charge. It will take place on 13th May, 10:30 – 12:00 CEST.

  • Myele Rouxel will dissect the Paris Agreement’s transparency framework and assess its capacity to incentivise greater climate ambition against a set of criteria drawn from compliance theory.
  • Highlighting a series of innovative legal arguments invoked by plaintiffs, Paul Mougeolle and Antoine Le Dylio will analyse a pending lawsuit before the Administrative Court of Paris challenging the lack of climate action by the French state.
  • Emily Davies will survey how investors – such as banks and pension funds – can become the targets of lawsuits and other dispute resolution mechanisms.
  • Finally, Kamil Daniel Akdag will discuss to what extent climate litigation acts as a quasi-liability mechanism for loss and damage under the Paris Agreement.
