Learning objectives

The main focus of the Seasonal School will be on the international legal context of climate change and on the global governance efforts addressing this phenomenon. However, in light of the complexity of climate change and the intrinsic need to adopt an interdisciplinary perspective, the Seasonal School will also provide the participants with the opportunity to acquire a basic knowledge of the scientific, economic and ethical aspects related to climate change. Notably, the legal perspective itself will be characterized by a multidisciplinary approach in order to reflect not only on the evolution of the specific body of international climate change law, but also on the role of other areas of law, such as human rights law, public comparative law, agricultural law and migration law.

Teaching methodologies

The Seasonal School is characterized by a unique combination of lectures and interactive sessions. The main goal of such an innovative approach is to provide the participants with the opportunity to apply to a practical scenario the theoretical skills acquired during the frontal sessions. In addition to the frontal lectures and the interactive sessions, also a high-level expert workshop on a timely and relevant issue will be included in the programme.

Who should attend this Seasonal School?

The course is intended for (Italian or foreign) undergraduate, postgraduate and PhD students. This Seasonal School's main target is represented by undergraduate students; however, Master and Ph.D. students are also encouraged to apply given the fact that the Seasonal School will fill an important gap in the current educational offer of Italian Universities, as well as of many foreign academic institutions.
