The Politics of Ecocide Law

Date: 7 June 2022

About the event

The campaign to establish a new crime of ‘ecocide’ is growing in momentum. The most prominent of those proposals, currently being developed by the international NGO, Stop Ecocide, seeks to achieve this goal by amending the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court (ICC). This public event hosted by Queen Mary's Centre for Climate Crime and Climate Justice will explore the prospects for this new criminal offence, and the barriers and the pitfalls that may stand in its way.
