Forced displacement due to environmental disruption is an increasing problem. Despite the growing number of people affected, the international community has not yet agreed on any legal recognition and protection of these Environmentally Induced Migrants (EIMs). The seminar will explore the complexity of drivers that determinates this phenomenon in order to comprehend the ongoing legal debate regarding the protection of such migrants. Students will acquire fundamental knowledge on different legal fields relevant to the situation of the EIMs.

-Convention on the status of refugees, complementary protections and principles on internal displacement;

-Main international and regional treaties on human rights;

-Fundamental principles on environmental law with a special focus on Climate Change.

During the lecturing, participants will be involved in interactive simulations and will be engaged in analysing different case studies. In the end, students will use the acquired knowledge in a group simulation creating a legal protection draft for the EIMs.

Good knowledge of English, willing to actively participate in class.

Previous legal knowledge  is not required.
