2. Towards a Biodiversity Law – The Changing Nature of Wildlife Law Webinar. The Centre for Environmental Law, Macquarie University, Darug Nation (Sydney, Australia) is hosting its third Law and Nature Dialogue webinar for Semester 1, 2022. Delivered in partnership with the IUCN World Commission on Environmental Law’s Biodiversity Law Specialist Group, the Law and Nature Dialogues webinar series hosts scholars from around the world to address a broad range of cutting-edge biodiversity law issues. The May webinar will be presented by Professor Colin Reid, University of Dundee, on 18 May 2022 at 5pm (AEST, Sydney time). The session will be chaired by Associate Professor Peter Davies. The title of the webinar is “Towards a Biodiversity Law – The Changing Nature of Wildlife Law.” The talk considers features of the development of wildlife law. It has evolved from simply restraining the most directly harmful conduct directed against a few favoured sites and species towards a more holistic approach. This has required the law to become more pervasive, applying in ever more situations, and more positive, as shown by the change in terminology from protection to conservation.  More information can be found on the events section of the Centre for Environmental Law’s website. Attendance is free. Register here to receive the zoom link. Recordings of this and all future and past Law and Nature Dialogues can be viewed on the Macquarie CEL YouTube account.

Challenges and Future Directions in the Interpretation of the European Convention on Human Rights (8 June, 4 pm CET). How does, and how should, the European Court of Human Rights interpret and apply the rights protected under the European Convention on Human Rights?

Building on three recently published books (see the symposium here), Dr Corina Heri, Dr Natasa Mavronicola and Dr Jens T.
