Published by: The World Jurist Association
The collection of articles in this volume provide a survey of five years of scholarship by the World Jurist Association, its members and the distinguished experts who have lent their time to speak and present their findings at our conferences around the world. This book will help you navigate through the sometimes confusing legal scholarship of climate change. The UN’s Copenhagen Conference set the stage for future collaboration. It is in this legal environment that the world’s leaders need to come together to determine the best way to protect our environment – and through it our health and well-being. These chapters will help you understand where the climate change discussion has been and where it needs to go next.
