IUCNAEL 2021 Colloquium - The future of Environmental Law: Ambition and Reality
Welcome to the website for the 18th Annual Colloquium of the IUCN Academy of Environmental Law - The Future of Environmental Law: Ambition and Reality
It is our great pleasure to invite you to the Netherlands for the 18th IUCN Academy of Environmental Law. Over the last 18 years the IUCN Academy of Environmental Law has provided a useful and important forum for legal scholars and experts from all parts of the world to exchange knowledge, experiences and insights relating to environmental law in a wide sense. The Annual Colloquium is one of the main vehicles to support the efforts of the Academy. Due to Covid-19 this Colloquium will be organized digitally.
The Law Faculty of the University of Groningen is honored to host this international conference in 2021 and we hope to welcome the international environmental law scholarly community to explore with us the future of Environmental Law, its ambition and reality.
The Colloquium will be held from the 28th of June till the 2nd of July. Due to the digital nature of the event we have opted for fewer contact hours each day and to have five days of presentations and discussions. The teaching and research oriented workshops that are customarily held during the same week will be organized at different points in time. Our hope to give the conference a Burgundian flair, featuring a winetasting and a gala-dinner in the ‘Der Aa-kerk’ (Der Aa-Church), had to be amended as well, but we are proud to inform that we are still able to host a digital wine-tasting and a historic tram-ride through Groningen (optional social events).
On behalf of our Faculty of Law we are looking forward to welcoming you to the Netherlands,
