Topics Overview

CIAJ’s 49th Annual Conference on Environment and the Law will critically examine the intersection of environmental crises, legal implications, and human rights. Vital to the discussion will be the issues of climate change refugees, immigration, land rights, and Indigenous people. The conference’s inclusive and multidisciplinary approach provides a platform for amplifying the voices of individuals and groups most affected and marginalized by environmental issues. This conference will foster dialogue aimed at understanding and addressing these issues, encouraging participants to contribute to crafting forward-thinking solutions. Together, we will explore the means to shape a legal environment that respects human rights, acknowledges the reality of environmental crises, and work toward a more sustainable and equitable future.
