Centre for Climate Crime and Climate Justice and IHSS Climate Emergency Group event
QMUL’s Centre for Climate Crime and Climate Justice and the IHSS Climate Emergency Group will co-host an event that explores the prospects for a new legal concept of ecocide. Following up on an earlier panel event on the ‘Politics of Ecocide’ held on the 7th June, this panel will discuss the question: will the law of ecocide can create a new ontology, or will it simply reinforce the colonial binaries and abyssal thinking that have brought us to this point?
