7th Annual Postgraduate
The last two centuries of rapid economic development enjoyed in various parts of the world have come at the price of serious environmental degradation on global scale. Climate change, water pollution, land degradation, species extinction and deforestation are only a few examples of a plethora of contemporary environmental issues. Laws and regulations introduced at various regulatory levels in order to tackle those problems have proved to be insufficient: many pressing environmental problems are still awaiting comprehensive regulatory frameworks successfully addressing the matter.
The idea behind this event is to bring together early career scholars researching in the area of environmental law (or other related fields) and to provide them with a platform for innovative thinking about current environmental issues. With unresolved environmental problems multiplying, it will take the creative minds of young scholars to develop new ideas of how these problems could be effectively addressed. We will particularly welcome submissions displaying a high level of originality, independent thinking and creativity in conducting legal research in environmental matters.
