IUCN WCEL co-organized the launch event "Dialogues on Nature, Justice and Peace"
The hybrid event took place on Friday 5th May and was hosted by Universidad Carlos III de Madrid (UC3M).
The launch event "Dialogues on Nature, Justice and Peace" was held on May 5th, co-organized by Universidad Carlos III de Madrid (UC3M), the International Council of Environmental Law (ICEL) and the Global Judicial Institute on the Environment (GJIE), with the partnership of World Jurist Association (WJA), UNEP and IUCN-WCEL. The workshop has advanced the spotlight on Nature-Justice-Peace issues which will be developed during the 2023 World Law Congress (NY, 20 and 21 July), organized by the WJA.
These Madrid 5th May’s Dialogues on Nature, Justice, and Peace have dived into the intimate interrelation between environmental issues, on the one hand, and justice and peace, basic and interdependent concepts-realities, on the other hand. The first panel focused on the judicial field while the second did so in the compound realm of security, peace and conflicts. In both cases, leading experts made reflections based on their well-recognized professional expertise in the field.
