First Contemporary Challenges of International Environmental Law Conference (CCIEL2012)
|Event Date/Time: Jun 28, 2012||End Date/Time: Jun 29, 2012|
|Registration Date: Jun 26, 2012|
The conference participants will address the areas of climate change, forest, sea and biodiversity protection, including issues of sustainable development, human right to a clean environment, migation of populations, state responsibility, the role of non-state actors,â€¦ as well as the importance of international legal regulation of these issues. The presenters at the conference are the leading experts in the field from Slovenia and abroad.
The intention of the conference is to establish a new platform for discussions on international environmental law, as the issues of international environmental law are seldome addressed and answered in such a comprehensive and interdisciplinary manner.
This year, when the international scientific and legal community celebrates the twentieth anniversary of the first United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development (Rio+20), the discussions at the First Contemporary Challenges Congerence of International Environmental Law will have a double significance. First, they will critically assess the current development in the field of international environmental law. Second, the presentations at the conference will also indicate the future directions of the international environmental law development and assess the outcomes of the Rio+20 conference, which will take place in Rio just one week earlier (June 20-22).
Our special guest speaker is the distinguished Philippe Sands, QC, Professor of International Law at the University College London and author of the Principles of International Environmental Law.
