International Seminar on Climate Litigation as Governance Tool

This international seminar organized in hybrid format at Duke Kunshan University on 24 October 2020 brought together 29 international and Chinese scholars and legal practitioners with first-hand experience in climate litigation to meet and exchange about these issues. Through case studies and cross-country analysis spanning the American, European and Asian continents, speakers discussed the potential and limitations of climate litigation as a new channel to combat climate change, including past development and trends, strengths, challenges, and implications. It also provided a unique opportunity for Chinese stakeholders to exchange with international counterparts and share their perspective on domestic environmental litigation.
