The academic staff of Jean Monnet Module Solidarity in European Union Law is glad to announce three SoEULaw lectures on “Environment protection and Solidarity in EU Law“.
Environment protection and Solidarity in EU Law – Prof. Estelle Brosset
The main objective of the lectures will be to deepen the understanding of how solidarity is implemented in EU environmental Law. The aim of the course will be to question what are the solidarity duties that potentially derive from art. 37 of the Charter of Fundamental Rights, which states that “high level of environmental protection and the improvement of the quality of the environment must be integrated into the policies of the Union and ensured in accordance with the principle of sustainable development”. The lectures will deal with concrete examples of solidarity within existing European Union environmental and natural resources law and policy. The existence of a European ecological citizenship will be questioned and case law related to Solidarity will be of particular interest during classes to examine the judicial treatment of ecological challenges. In this matter, the conceptof solidarity will be particularly analysed in the context of climate change law and climate justice.
