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.
