Ecocide and Humanitarian Catastrophe in the Anthropocene
Time: Mon 2015-11-23 12.00 - 13.00
Lecturer: Polly Higgins
Location: KTH Entréhuset, Drottning kristinas väg 4
Could criminalising mass damage and destruction of ecosystems at the top level be a game-changer in how we collectively relate to nature? Would an international law of ecocide help the millions of people fleeing when their homes have been unhabitable?
Welcome to a lecture with Polly Higgins, barrister, author and international environmental lawyer to discuss ecocide in relation to migration and refuge.
The lecture is followed by a workshop (sign-up before November 15).
The lecture is organised by the EHL in collaboration with KTH-Sustainability.
