In order to expand contemporary knowledge and strengthen international academic cooperation on biodiversity litigation, The Law & Development Research Group at the Faculty of Law and the Institute of Development Policy at the University of Antwerp will host three international online workshops on biodiversity litigation characterized both by geographical focus and transversal reflections. Each workshop will last for 3 hours and host up to six presentations.
- Workhop 1
December 13, 2021 - European biodiversity litigations
The first workshop will be focused on the European jurisdictions. Guillaume Futhazar (Max-Planck Institute), Lucas Dermenghem (Green Law Advocats), Paul Stookes (Richard Buxton Solicitors), and Charles-Hubert Born (UCLouvain) have already agreed to join as panelists, and they will cover France, the UK, and the EU framework. Three more presentations are thus sought.
- Workshop 2
March 11, 2022 - Biodiversity litigation in the Global South
The second workshop will focus on biodiversity litigation in the Global South. Six presentations are sought.
- Workshop 3
June 10, 2022 - Building a transnational research agenda on biodiversity litigation
The third workshop will be an opportunity to bring together the participants and topics of the previous conversations. Rather than presentations, this workshop will be organized as a round-table of all participants (speakers and participants) to the previous presentations.
Participation is free of charge, but registration is necessary.
