Climate Change Law in Europe

This Scientific Research Network seeks to contribute to legal innovation in Climate Change Law in Europe. Its geographical scope is limited to the European Union (EU) and the United Kingdom (UK). Its research, however, will not be limited to EU and domestic Climate Change Law. Insofar as it is relevant for Climate Change Law in the EU and the UK, the international legal and governance framework and other regional frameworks (UNECE, ECHR, …) will also be involved. The network partners will work together on four key issues: A just transition to a low carbon economy; Human rights in Climate Change Law; Biodiversity protection in Climate Change Law; Governance innovation in Climate Change Law. The UHasselt Environmental Law Unit (ELU) is coordinating the network. The other network partners are the UGent Centre for Environmental and Energy Law, the UAntwerpen Law and Development Research Group, the Centre for Climate Law and Sustainability Studies (CLASS) of the Institute of State and Law of the Czech Academy of Sciences, the Centre for International Law and Governance (CILG) of the University of Copenhagen, the Centre for Climate Change, Energy and Environmental Law of the University of Eastern Finland (UEF) and the Strathclyde Centre for Environmental Law and Governance (SCELG) of the University of Strathclyde (Scotland).

Period of project: 10 October 2022 – 31 December 2027
