The urgent ecological crises of the Anthropocene confront us with new challenges. Which role can and should Courts play as an arena for change? Do the numerous violations of the environment call for new international criminal laws to protect the environment? The conference is organized by Utrecht University and the Dutch Association for Environmental Law.

Outstanding experts from academia and practice will reflect on the role of judiciary in catalysing climate change mitigation and also discuss the proposal of recognizing ecocide as a core international crime.
