2016-2017 International Law Distinguished Visitor Lecture: “The Implications of Human Rights Law for Addressing Climate Change”
Prof. John H. Knox of Wake Forest University School of Law will speak on the intersection of human rights and climate change at Lewis & Clark Law School. Climate change has been called the greatest threat to human rights in the twenty-first century. The rapidly warming climate is already contributing to floods in India, droughts in southern Africa, and typhoons in the Philippines, and is threatening to displace communities from the Arctic to the South Pacific. How can a human rights perspective help to combat its worst effects? The title of his talk is “The Implications of Human Rights Law for Addressing Climate Change.”
