The Plight of Climate Refugees

Rising Seas, Melting Ice, and Inadequate Legal Protections

The Plight of Climate Refugees: Rising Seas, Melting Ice, and Inadequate Legal Protections flyer

Please join the Environmental and Energy Law program as they discuss how climate change impacts continue to displace vulnerable communities around the world with increasing frequency and intensity. Existing domestic and international legal frameworks are inadequate to confront the unfolding global climate change displacement crisis. The global community needs to bridge the divide between international environmental law and international human rights law frameworks to address this pressing issue at the forefront of global climate change adaptation and resilience.
