New EIEL webinar on armed conflicts and the environment with Anne Dienelt

The academic staff of the EIEL Jean Monnet module is pleased to announce that on 29 September it will host Dr Anne Dienelt for a new webinar on the protection of the environment in relation to armed conflicts. The event will be the first EIEL webinar of the 2022/2023 academic year.

Dr Anne Dienelt works as a senior research fellow and lecturer at the University of Hamburg. She currently researches questions of resilience in terms of law in light of crises, such as climate change or pandemics. During the webinar, which will take place on 29 September 2022 at 15.30 CEST on the YouTube channel of the EIEL Jean Monnet Module, Dr Dienelt will present her recently-published monograph on Armed Conflicts and the Environment – Complementing the Laws of Armed Conflict with Human Rights Law and International Environmental Law (Springer 2022).

More specifically, Dr Dienelt will discuss how the protection of the environment in relation to armed conflicts can be enhanced within the existing framework of international law, through the complementary application of three fields of international law, namely the law of armed conflicts, international human rights law, and international environmental law. The webinar will also represent an additional opportunity to discuss the working paper published in January 2022 by EIEL project members Riccardo Pavoni and Dario Piselli, which assesses the history and significance of Principle 24 of the Rio Declaration and calls for the development of a comprehensive multilateral convention on armed conflicts and the environment.

The webinar will be open to all interested participants, and will be available at this link.
