Symposium on Global Environmental Law
TRANSCEND VIDEOS, 8 Oct 2018
Nov 2017 – The symposium aimed to discuss whether and to what extent emerging concepts in global environmental law can help shed new light on the evolution and challenges of environmental law across different levels and sectors. It considered the need for a future research agenda for environmental law scholarship, and the form those directions might take, including theoretical and methodological agendas.
Richard Falk is a member of the TRANSCEND Network, an international relations scholar, professor emeritus of international law at Princeton University, author, co-author or editor of 40 books, and a speaker and activist on world affairs. In 2008, the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) appointed Falk to a six-year term as a United Nations Special Rapporteur on “the situation of human rights in the Palestinian territories occupied since 1967.” Since 2002 he has lived in Santa Barbara, California, and taught at the local campus of the University of California in Global and International Studies, and since 2005 chaired the Board of the Nuclear Age Peace Foundation. His most recent book is Achieving Human Rights (2009).
