Inaugural Meeting of the ELI Climate Justice – New Challenges for the Law and Judges Project


Reporters of the above project, Prof Dr Alberto De Franceschi and Prof Henrik Andersen, met the Project Team and the Advisory Committee on 22 March 2022 to begin working on the Principles.

During the meeting participants discussed some of the topics that the Principles will cover. It was emphasised that one of the main aims of the project is to provide guidance to judges on how to use various currently available instruments in cases on the protection of the climate.

The Team will proceed with research and drafting, results of which will be presented and discussed at a conference, which will take place on 7 July 2022 in Ferrara, Italy (more information will follow). Feedback received at that conference will be further analysed by the Team at its in-person meeting on 8 July 2022.
