Conference the Health-Environment Nexus and the Systemic Implications of Environmental Crimes

The Grotius Centre for International Legal Studies, in collaboration with the Cambridge Centre for Environment, Energy and Natural Resource Governance (‘C-EENRG’, University of Cambridge) and the ESIL Interest Group (IG) on International Criminal Justice, is pleased to invite public international scholars, students and practitioners to attend a conference that will take place online on 19 November 2021 (17h00-19h00 CET) with the title ‘The Health-Environment Nexus and the Systemic Implications of Environmental Crimes’. The conference is also organized in collaboration with the ESIL IG on International Health law and the Platform on International Energy Governance.

The webinar will be composed of two main panels. The conference intends to address (i) the question on how to bridge the nexus between health, environment and climate change and to critically discuss the role of international law and institutions as well as of political cooperation in building such a nexus; and (ii) the role, scope and effectiveness of international criminal and transnational law with regard to environmental crimes. The aim of the conference is also to provide a platform to debate the outcome of the 2021 United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP26), which will be held in Glasgow from 1 to 12 November 2021.

Dr Ginevra Le Moli, Chair of the IG on International Criminal Justice and Assistant Professor of Public International Law at Leiden University, organized the event and will chair one panel of the conference. She will be joined by a distinguished list of speakers and experts in the field, from both practice and academia.
