Environmental Justice, Climate Change and Human Rights

BOOKS AND ACADEMIC ARTICLES 15 Sep 2022 Global Campus Europe

Mariana Catalão, an associate in SÉRVULO's Litigation department, is the author of the Master's thesis on "Environmental Justice, Climate Change and Human Rights: Different contributions, different consequences and different capabilities should equal different human rights obligations" published by the Global Campus of Human Rights, in the scope of the selection process for awarded Master's theses.

The author analyses the possibility of holding the most polluting States accountable for transnational damages caused by an excessive amount of greenhouse gas emissions, resorting to the concept of extraterritorial human rights obligations, which is increasingly recognised in the international community.
