This topic is regulated by several fields of public international law, such as the laws of armed conflict, international environmental law and international human rights law. Several questions at this intersection will be analyzed in the course of the project. We aim at publishing a joint peer-reviewed article. First research ideas will be discussed during an in-house seminar in Lund this fall with scholars from different disciplines, such as natural science and law. In spring, a final draft of the paper will presented and discussed during a workshop in Hamburg. International scholars working on the topic will be invited. To reach a broader audience, a webinar on the topic will be offered on the platform environmentalpeacebuilding.org. We also plan to submit a panel proposal to the International Law Weekend in New York, where parts of our joint research will be presented.
