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.

Speakers include:

  • Jane McAdam, Kaldor Centre for International Refugee Law –will present by video and Sanjula Weerasinghe will respond in Q&A.
  • Richard Bedford, Waikato University
  • David Cantor, RLI
  • Lucy Daxbacher, Intergovernmental Authority on Development Secretariat (IGAD)

This session is the fifth in a seminar series convened by the Refugee Law Initiative and its Internal Displacement Research Programme, in partnership with the Platform on Disaster Displacement.

The series brings together diverse scholarly and practitioner perspectives on how law and policy can respond to global human mobility and environmental challenges.  Its six topical sessions will be broadcast live in an interactive format via Zoom.
