Conference Human Rights and Climate Change

Organised by the Centre for Climate Law and Sustainability Studies (CLASS) at the Institute of State and Law of the Czech Academy of Sciences. It is one part of the SOLSTICE project called ‘Socially Just and Politically Robust Decarbonisation: A Knowledge Base and Toolkit for Policymakers’ (JUSTDECARB).


The JUSTDECARB project is a collaboration of CICERO-Center for International Climate Research (Oslo), the Grantham Research Institute on Climate Change and the Environment at LSE (London) and Institute of Public Law and Political Science and Field of Excellence ‘Climate Change Graz’ at University of Graz.

The conference will cover topics such as developing theoretical foundations for linking human rights and the climate, examining human rights-based climate litigation from various theoretical and practical perspectives, re-interpreting traditional human rights to cover climate risks, developing new environmental and climate human rights, seeking solutions for barriers found in the application of traditional human rights in climate protection (e.g. problems of extraterritoriality or duties towards future generations), solving causation and attribution hurdles in rights-based climate litigation, exploring human rights aspects of climate justice in transition and decarbonisation policies, and outlining future pathways to apply human rights instruments in climate protection more effectively.
