Climate Change Litigation: Global Perspectives

Following an event at the British Institute of International and Comparative Law (BIICL) which brought together academics, legal practitioners and NGO representatives to discuss the rise of climate change litigation both in domestic fora and internationally, Monica Feria-Tinta was invited to contribute to the ground-breaking book ‘Climate Change Litigation: Global Perspectives’, published under the auspices of BIICL, by BRILL in May 2021.

In a seminal chapter on the topic, titled “Climate Change as a Human Rights Issue: Litigating Climate Change in the Inter-American System of Human Rights and the United Nations Human Rights Committee”, Monica Feria-Tinta critically discusses whether human rights courts (in particular international courts at regional and the UN level) can effectively address climate change degradation as a human rights issue.  The chapter examines the relevance of the Paris Agreement in the interpretation of human rights treaties and the emerging principles and jurisprudence currently developing in the Inter-American System and the UN, making climate change issues justiciable in international fora.
