Climate Change and the Testing of International Law: A Selective Bibliography
Climate Change and the Testing of International Law: A Selective Bibliography by Ms. Eveline van Trigt
On Wednesday 29 March, 2023, the UN General Assembly adopted a landmark resolution by consensus. This resolution, A/77/L.58, concerns a request for an Advisory Opinion of the International Court of Justice, in pursuit of ‘bolder’ climate action regarding countries’ obligations to address climate change and human rights obligations stemming from international law.
Initially prepared for the Centre 2022, this bibliography is now being updated in the context of this UN resolution. It deals with several aspects of climate change and international law and specific topics related to climate change, such as migration, human rights, peace and security, geoengineering, the disappearance of island states, state responsibility, climate finance, the Paris Agreement, just to name a few. A new chapter has been added: Chapter 3.2 International climate change law and international adjudication.
