Climate-induced migration and international law: Will the law ever catch up?
Thursday, 25 April 2024, 14:00-15:00 CET | online  
with Avidan Kent (University of East Anglia’s School of Law) and Simon Behrman (Warwick University’s School of Law)

A decade ago, the legal academic literature focused primarily on the ‘legal gap’: international law did not address climate-induced migration in any significant way, and the topic was hardly discussed in international fora. Authors’ attention was focused on the identification of the scope of the legal gap, as well as on drafting treaty proposals to address it. The previous decade, however, has seen fast and significant developments on several fronts.

This talk will assess these developments. It will examine whether at least part of the gap has been closed, what new and innovative models have emerged and what can be expected for the future.
