Calls for Papers
Forests at the Crossroads of International Law – University of Copenhagen: This workshop aims at understanding how the different areas of international law (including transnational and regional law) engage with forests and what these different layers of protection mean for the protection of forests. This line of enquiry will enable us to make sense
of the links, tensions and opportunities that the many initiatives from regional, transnational and international entities entail, and provide for an assessment of the impacts of those various areas of law are, not individually, but as a whole. Papers that touch upon the impacts of different legal frameworks on the protection of forests are welcome, from human rights to biodiversity, climate justice, sustainability, and beyond.
The 2-day workshop will be held in Copenhagen, at the Faculty of Law, on 4-5 September 2023. It will be possible to join online for those you cannot travel, as the event will be held in a hybrid manner. Abstracts of no more than 600 words are to be submitted by 31 March 2023 to Justine.firstname.lastname@example.org. For more information, click here.
