Please join the Emmett Environmental Law & Policy Clinic for a lunch talk with Visiting Professor Jane McAdam. Professor McAdam is a distinguished scholar in international refugee law and forced migration, with a particular focus on climate change, disasters, and displacement.
Professor McAdam will discuss the role that planned relocations—both temporary evacuations and permanent relocations—may play in the context of climate change. She will address conceptual issues related to “relocation” in light of existing normative frameworks as well as policy challenges about how relocations are—or could be—used in practice. In addition, she will discuss whether human rights norms impose a duty on States to move people out of harm’s way. Her talk will be followed by Q&A with students.
Lunch will be served. Please RSVP to Jacqueline Calahong, 617-496-2058 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
