Transitional Justice & Climate Change

Event

Thomson House 3650 rue McTavish, Montreal, QC, H3A 1Y2, CA

Climate change raises a host of concerns about justice due to the varied contributions to and impacts of climate change across time, communities and countries. A presentation by Professor Klinsky will examine the global climate context through the lens of transitional justice, assessing applicability of a transitional lens to the climate context and laying out several strategies and practices that could be modified for potential use within the climate regime.

The presentation will be followed by a conversation with members of the Centre for Human Rights and Legal Pluralism.
