Our book on climate law to be published at the end of 2022

18. 7. 2022

We have the good news that in June our team completed the manuscript of the book "Climate Law", which is now being prepared for publication by Wolters Kluwer Publishing. This will be the first volume treating the field of climate law in Czech, with an introductory section that will introduce readers to the context of climate change from the perspective of climate science, political science, economy, sociology and ethics. The legal chapters will then cover the general foundations of the newly formed climate law, the reflections of climate change in international law, the background of EU and Czech climate law, the main sectors affected by climate regulation, and selected issues of liability and enforcement in climate law, including the rise of climate litigation. For a more detailed overview of the content of the book and the author team, please see here [in Czech].

21. 6. 2022

On 15 June 2022, the Municipal Court in Prague ruled on the first Czech climate action, largely upholding it. On our blog, we recapitulate the story of Czech climate litigation so far (which may not be over yet) and highlight how the court has dealt with the plaintiffs' claims. So far, we are relying on the oral pronouncement of the court's decision – the official written judgment is not yet available. You can read the commentary here.

CLASS will take part in the project focused on establishing a network of European research centres dealing with climate law

11. 3. 2022

Our Centre participated in the preparation of the project submitted by Hasselt University as project coordinator to the Research Foundation – Flanders FWO. The project called Climate Change Law in Europe succeeded and we will be part of an international consortium for the next 5 years. Other participating institutions are Ghent University, University of Antwerp, University of Copenhagen, University of Eastern Finland, University of Strathclyde Law School and the Institute of State and Law of the CAS through the CLASS research unit. The aim of the project is to lay the basis for a European network of research centres dealing with climate law. Such a network does not yet exist (unlike environmental law). The scope of the project will look more closely at four content pillars - a just transition to a low-carbon economy, the relationship between human rights and climate change, biodiversity and climate change, and innovation in governance in relation to climate change. The CLASS Centre is to co-ordinate the 'human rights' pillar. The project will organise workshops and conferences, produce joint publications, organise postdoctoral exchanges and visits to participating institutions, and organise a summer school on climate law.  


Online lecture by Prof. Kim Bouwer: Climate Litigation and Climate Activism

1. 3. 2022

Kim Bouwer is Assistant Professor at the Durham Law School, University of Durham, UK. Previously she was a Lecturer in Law at the Exeter Law School, a Max Weber Fellow at the European University Institute (Florence), a Lecturer at the University of Strathclyde (Glasgow), and a Teaching Fellow at University College London (London and Adelaide). Her research interests include climate law - with a particular interest in climate litigation, covering climate litigation in Africa, too.  Her other favourite topics include human rights perspective on climate change, equity and justice in relation to climate law, and climate activism in connection to climate litigation. Prof. Bouwer has authored and co-authored several books and articles on these topics.

In her lecture, prof. Bouwer interlinks climate litigation and climate activism in two ways: an activist litigation, and a litigation as just one of the tools of climate activism. She illustrates her explanation with  many UK and other climate cases, trying to answer the following set of questions: What is climate litigation? Why are there no successful climate cases in the UK? Her core argument is that there are in fact more successful climate litigations in the UK than one would think because there is a need to pay attention not only to the cases that appear in newspaper headlines but to any kind of adjudication with the outcome that can affect climate policy.

The lecture was given on 16 December 2021. The recording of the lecture is available on our You Tube channel here.

Presentation on Sustainable consumption by Rita Simon

15. 10. 2021

Final consumption represents ca. 65% of total GDP in the OECD countries . With the growing economic awareness of finite resources and raw materials, changing consumer patterns toward more green and sustainable consumption become, a target for academic debate and governmental policy since the Rio Earth Summit in 1992. However, from the legal point of view, legislative instruments are very rarely used for a more sustainable nudging of end-consumers via choice-editing, pricing or taxation; and intertwining environmental and consumer law is still missing. These lacks are even more visible in the Czech Republic and other newer EU Member States with a communist past. European consumer law puts more effort into the achievement of the single market, which is key to in stimulating European economic growth, rather than reducing consumerism. The focus of legal debates tends to be problems concerning withdrawal rights, repair instead of replace, clear eco-information and surveillance of greenwashing. Effective incentives for share rather than drive or buy are missing. On the other hand, consumer choice is limited to the products available on the markets, and more than 80% of a product´s environmental impact is determined at the design stage, according to the statistics.

The Rita's presentation clarifies the limits of citizens’ capacity for sustainable consumption and deals with the role that average consumers play in the supply chain (1), and underlines the necessity of a two-pronged approach to promoting sustainable consumption between sustainable production – and less consumption (2). The presentation was recorded for and delivered at the International online conference Social and Scientific Uncertainties in Environmental Law (EELF Annual Conference 2021) that was held by the Bournemouth University on 8-10 September 2021.

The recording of the presentation is available on our You Tube channel here.


Online lecture by Prof. Philippe Cullet from University of London: The Right to Water in the Context of Climate Change

12. 10. 2021

Prof. Philippe Cullet from the University of London was our online guest on 30 September 2021. In his lecture "The Right to Water in the Context of Climate Change" he first focused on the concept of the human right to water. He described the current findings and considerations on its recognition, distinguished the notions of “water rights” and “right to water”, commented on the content of the right from the quality and quantity point of view, as well as from the perspectives of the access to water and affordability of water. In the second part of his lecture, prof. Cullet concentrated on the interlinkages between the right to water and climate change. He mentioned problems like water scarcity and water overabundance, inter-sectoral allocation of water, economic policies and international water law references to climate change.

Prof. Cullet is a Professor of international and environmental law. He is the chair of the Centre of Law, Environment and Development and a member of the SOAS South Asia Institute, of the Centre for Water and Development, as well as of the Centre for Human Rights Law. His main areas of interest include environmental law, natural resources, human rights and the socio-economic aspects of intellectual property. His current research includes work on water law and governance. Prof. Cullet has authored several monographs, also including the topics of environmental law and water law. His professional interests also led him to India where he works as a senior visiting fellow in New Delhi.

The recording of the lecture is available on our You Tube channel here.


Presentation on Precautionary principle and climate change

12. 10. 2021

The presentation by Hana Müllerová explains the principle of precaution and its application in climate law. It focuses on the main elements of the principle with a special focus on the element of scientific uncertainty. In that regard, it describes the role of the IPCC Panel and tries to explain its so called “uncertainty language” to climate lawyers.

The recording was made at the internal seminar of CLASS on 16 September 2021.

Hana Müllerová presented on collissions between nature protection and wind energy interests

17. 9. 2021

The presentation examines the instruments that law can use to solve collisions between interests, on an example of collisions between wind farms and nature protection. The first part focuses on the status and weight that protection to species, habitats and birds have had in EU legislation, compared to the legislative support for wind energy, representing renewables. Then, the most common procedural instruments are presented that help coordinating public and private interests, such as territorial planning processes, environmental impact assessment, and public participation in environmental decision-making. The presentation was recorded for and delivered at the International online conference Social and Scientific Uncertainties in Environmental Law (EELF Annual Conference 2021) that was held by the Bournemouth University on 8-10 September 2021.

The recording of the presentation is available on our You Tube channel here.


Climate litigation topic on the Prague Narodni TEDx

22. 7. 2021

At the end of June, a TEDx Narodni event was held in Prague, with the title We can change climate change: Countdown to a healthier future. The main theme of the event was climate crisis and the ways how to accelerate and increase the efficacy of the transition to a low carbon economy. The event was targeted at interconnecting experts from various fields and searching for the most efficient climate solutions. We are glad that a member of our team Eva Balounova was among the speakers on the second day of the event. She presented the topic of climate litigation as one of the promising law approaches to stronger climate protection.

Online lecture of Prof. Mary Wood (Uni Oregon): Atmospheric Trust Litigation Against Governments to Force Action on Carbon Reduction

11 May 2021

Professor Wood will describe lawsuits filed against governments in the U.S. and across the world to force carbon emissions reduction.  She will compare judicial approaches between courts in various countries.  She will emphasize the role of science in these lawsuits and define a productive judicial role in verifying appropriate climate targets for nations irrespective of political commitments.

Mary Christina Wood is a Philip H. Knight Professor of Law at the University of Oregon and the Faculty Director of the law school's nationally acclaimed Environmental and Natural Resources Law Center.  She is an award-winning professor and the co-author of leading textbooks on public trust law and natural resources law.  Her book, Nature's Trust: Environmental Law for a New Ecological Age (Cambridge University Press), sets forth a new paradigm of global ecological responsibility.  She originated the legal approach called Atmospheric Trust Litigation, now being used in cases brought on behalf of youth throughout the world, seeking to hold governments accountable to reduce carbon pollution within their jurisdictions.  She has developed a corresponding approach called Atmospheric Recovery Litigation, which would hold fossil fuel companies responsible for funding an Atmospheric Recovery Plan to draw down excess carbon dioxide in the atmosphere using natural climate solutions.   Professor Wood is a frequent speaker on climate issues and has received national and international attention for her sovereign trust approach to global climate policy.

The lecture will take place on 13 May at 5 PM (CEST). To attend, please register at class@ilaw.cas.cz.

UPDATED: The recording of the lecture is available here.

13 July 2020

The Czech Academic Climate Forum was established in 2013 by a common manifesto of almost thirty experts (in Czech only). It works as an informal platform of researchers and experts drawing attention to the effects of climate change in the Czech Republic, and offers its knowledge, findings and contexts to policy makers, business, media and the education system. It looks for synergies across disciplines and calls for scientific knowledge to be considered, interpreted and communicated in order to raise public awareness. The June meeting of the Forum was held at the UN Information Centre Prague. There, the mission, goals and plans of the Center for Climate Law and Sustainability Studies were presented by Hana Müllerová; the relationship between climate science and law was then the main topic of the discussion.

Photo: Markus Spiske on UnsplashCLASS team working from home

31 March 2020

The Institute of State and Law of the Czech Academy of Sciences has temporarily closed its physical offices in Prague in response to COVID-19. The team at the Centre for Climate Law and Sustainability Studies are all working remotely, from home. We are learning new ways of continuing our research and looking for innovative and creative opportunities to communicate our findings, including via digital gatherings and virtual meeting technologies. The COVID-19 topic has taken over the public space and seems to have temporarily eclipsed the climate change debate. However, we are progressing with our work, hoping that our communities will overcome the crisis together and that afterwards we will be able again to present our findings and publications at personal meetings and conferences that are currently impossible.


The Centre for Climate Law and Sustainability Studies (CLASS) launched research

20 January 2020

The new research unit, the first in the Czech Republic with a specialisation in climate law, was set up at the Institute of State and Law of the Czech Academy of Sciences. A team of law researchers and a climatologist will study the contemporary challenges and problems that climate change poses to law at all levels. The members of the Centre will steer the new discipline into Czech law scholarship and cultivate and present it systematically through conferences, workshops, expert lectures and publications, as well as by presenting their findings on the Centre’s website. They will develop interdisciplinary collaboration and establish contacts and cooperation with other climate law research teams in Europe. The creation of the new research unit has been realised thanks to the kind support of the Czech Academy of Sciences through a ‘Lumina quaeruntur’ academic award that was granted to our researcher Hana Müllerová to run her climate law project over the next five years. Her new team will examine the environmental law aspects of the consequences of climate change, as well as related issues such as legal links between climate change and protection of human rights, the regulation of energy, transport, emission trading systems and international trade and investment. The focus of the Centre will cover International, European and Czech law. At the level of national law, the team plans to stimulate better implementation of our climate commitments and to provide expert recommendations and opinions to Czech legislative and other public bodies.
