Room 3.48, Turfmarkt 99, Den Haag

Have you ever wondered about the link between climate change, human rights and the role of the state? Would you like to know more about the impacts of climate change on people living in risk areas and how the law is used to address these impacts? Find out more at the lunch lecture: Climate Justice



On the 29th of April, we are hosting a lunch lecture by Assistant Professor Dr Margaretha Wewerinke-Singh of Leiden University. Margaretha is a professor of international law at Leiden University. Her research broadly focuses on the role of law in addressing sustainable development challenges. She has acted as a legal adviser to governments at international climate negotiations, represented non-governmental organisations at the UN Human Rights Council and advised the African Commission on Human and Peoples’ Rights on the consequences of climate change for human rights in Africa. 

Join us at 12:00 at room 3.48 of the Leiden University Wijnhaven building in the Hague for an insight into the legal aspects of climate justice.  We will provide vegetarian sandwiches for all attendees, so be sure to register for the event:
