Webinar | Legal Response to Cross-Border ‘Environmental’ Mobility
How can law respond to situations when people move across an international border in the context of disasters, climate change and environmental degradation?
During this webinar, leading scholars and experts will share lessons learned and reflections on how international, regional and national legal frameworks – including refugee, human rights and migration law – can address and provide solutions to cross-border human mobility in these contexts.
Join us for a discussion moderated by Atle Solberg, Head of the Secretariat of the Platform on Disaster Displacement.
