Join the third (and final) webinar of the series: "Climate Change and International Economic Law: Where are we headed?" A cooperation of Uni Göttingen, Uni Svizzera Italiana and World Trade Institute (Unibe).
As climate change intensifies, so does the scrutiny on the actions and responsibilities of governments and corporations in addressing its impact. Climate-related lawsuits are increasingly being fi led in domestic and international courts. Parties to disputes, whether trade or investment related, more and more frequently use and depend on arguments related to climate change to advance their claims or defend their positions.
