Climate Change needs Climate Justice

Centre for the Study of Human Rights and Matrix Chambers public lecture

Date: Thursday 10 March 2011
Time: 6.30-8pm
Venue:  Old Theatre, Old Building
Speaker: Mary Robinson
Chair: Professor Conor Gearty

The debate on climate change is moving from stopping it to how best to manage its effects. Climate justice links human rights and development to achieve a human-centered approach to the issue, safeguarding the rights of the most vulnerable and sharing the burdens and benefits of climate change and its resolution equitably and fairly.

Mary Robinson was president of Ireland (1990-1997) and former United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (1997-2002).
