Webinar: Launch of the Special Issue on Climate Litigation in the Chinese Journal of Environmental Law
In December 2023, the Chinese Journal of Environmental Law published a special issue on climate litigation, edited by Maria Antonia Tigre and Otto Spijkers. The special issue features a wide range of articles written exclusively by rapporteurs of the Sabin Center’s Peer Review Network of Climate Litigation. This special issue addresses persistent imbalances and disparities in climate litigation, transcending perceived challenges by broadening the narrative and exploring uncharted territories. With over 50% of cases across diverse jurisdictions favorably aligned with climate action, the issue presents incisive analyses spanning themes, jurisdictions, and innovative dimensions within climate litigation. Examining cases from Belgium, Italy, Argentina, South Africa, Germany, China, Japan, and the aviation sector, the special issue contributes to a richer understanding of climate litigation's pivotal role in addressing global challenges. This webinar will launch the special issue, with brief presentations by the authors of the papers included in it.
