2. Webinar on the Human Right to a Healthy and Sustainable Environment. On Tuesday 13 September 2022 at 4pm CET, the Institute for International Law of Peace and Armed Conflict hosts a webinar on the recent UN General Assembly resolution recognising the human right to a clean, healthy, and sustainable environment. The resolution has been described as a landmark resolution – but what, if any, is the legal significance of it and how new is the right to a healthy environment really? Prof. Dr. Pierre Thielbörger (IFHV) will discuss these and other questions with Prof. Dr. David Boyd, UN Special Rapporteur on human rights and the environment (University of British Columbia), Dr. Marie Petersmann (Tilburg Law School), Prof. Dr. Otto Spijkers (Wuhan University), and Dr. Arpitha Kodiveri (New York University). The panel discussion will be followed by a Q&A-section. Register for the webinar here and find more info here.

The book promotes the dissemination of international law in Spanish and contributes to the consolidation of legal education through a series of collaborations that analyse various historical and contemporary aspects of public international law, the correlation between international law and its interpretation in Latin America, the future of the United Nations, the emergence of international environmental law, as well as international justice and prosecutions, including those before the ICJ and ICC. It also includes issues related to human rights and international humanitarian law such as reparation for victims of international crimes, the law of indigenous peoples, legal discussions around COVID-19, the law of the sea and the so-called blue economy.
