Programme: Climate Workshop Programme 

Biographies of Presenters

Organised by Prof Margaret Young (Melbourne Law School) and Dr Markus Gehring (Cambridge)

This workshop will assess current trajectories of the climate regime in the context of public international law and in the wake of the Conference of the Parties (COP27) of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) in Sharm El-Sheikh, Egypt.

Themes include intersections between climate change and human rights, climate change and trade and investment law, climate change and oceans governance, climate change and decarbonisation, and international climate litigation. Participants are invited to depart from the pragmatic, state-oriented discussions of COP27 and offer scholarly analysis and critique. Rights and obligations of states, subnational entities, international organisations and other actors will be assessed. Papers will draw on a variety of methodologies, including historical work, empirical country-based engagement, and a focus on how the COP’s sphere of professional specialisation sits alongside other regimes of international law. The participants are PhD students, Early Career Researchers and senior academics from Melbourne Law School and the University of Cambridge, and other academic institutions.

The discussants at the workshop include Dr Joanna Depledge, Dr Markus Gehring, Prof Campbell McLachlan KC, Prof Sundhya Pahuja, Prof Jacqueline Peel, Prof Marie-Claire Cordonier Segger, Prof Christina Voigt and Prof Margaret Young.
There is no online/hybrid element at this workshop. Registrations have now closed.

The workshop and the participation of MLS Faculty and PhD students are supported by a Cambridge Law Faculty - Melbourne Law School Partnership Grant, the Lauterpacht Centre for International Law, and the Institute for International Law and the Humanities.
