Climate Change & Environment
Climate change is one of the defining issues of our time. The effects of climate change phenomena, such as global warming, ocean acidification and sea level rise, have implications for a number of areas of international law including, but not limited to, the law of the sea, laws relating to territory, migration and climate displacement, energy law and policy around the globe, international treaty-making, implementation and enforcement and human rights.
Over the past years, BIICL has been conducting applied comparative research on issues in relation to climate change and its impact on global security and survival. BIICL seeks to engage with the issue in a way that adds value through its strengths in public international law, human rights, business and human rights and migration expertise.
