Legal Mobilizations on the Frontlines: Lawyering for Environmental and Social Justice Amid Economic Globalization

Civil society is to a great extent the only reliable motor for driving institutions to change at the pace required (IPCC, 2018: 352). With increasing impacts of climate change and insufficient institutional change, much depends on the capacity of civil society and the legal mobilisation of communities to press for a deeper re-ordering of our socio-economic structures. In this workshop, we create a space for exploratory exchanges on how to enable and amplify the influence of communities and civil societies through law. Organised by Professor Christina Eckes (UvA) and Professor Phillip Paiement (Tilburg)
