Lecture: Sharing Responsibility in International Environmental Law – Fundamental Contradictions

  • Wednesday 26th April 2017
  • Collins Suite, Collins Building, University of Strathclyde, Glasgow

It has become commonplace to say that the responsibility to protect the environment is shared between multiple actors, rather than  resting on one actor alone.  Much of modern international environmental law indeed is based on this premise. However, the idea that  responsibility should be shared hides fundamental complexities and contradictions.  The SCELG Biannual Lecture will explore one of such contradictions.  This event will take place from 15.00-18.00 and is free to attend but registration is required.


  • Professor Andre Nollkaemper, Dean and Professor of Public International Law, Amsterdam Law School, University of Amsterdam.
