Launch of the first book in the Normandy Chair of Excellence for Peace series

INVITATION

Legal Actions for Future Generations co-directed by Emilie Gaillard and by David Forman

February 19, 2021 | 6 – 7.30 pm | via Zoom

In the presence of some of the authors who participated in its writing and Emilie Gaillard.

Drawing on the landmark 1993 Philippine Supreme Court case of Minors Oposa vs. Factoran, this book demonstrates how today and tomorrow legal actions can now be imagined and implemented on behalf of future generations. The book explores the philosophical, legal, and scientific underpinnings for bringing the legal protection of the future into the courtroom.

Several themes are developed: the entry into the nuclear era and the necessary protection of future generations, climate justice, the multiple ways of protecting the rights of Nature or the new ways of thinking made necessary in the era of the advent of transhumanist projects which could renew the legal question of the protection of the future human condition.

This dedicated time will allow you to exchange with some authors who participated in the drafting of this work which deserves to be widely distributed as well as with Emilie GAILLARD.

After this launch, which will be held in French and English (without simultaneous translation), another launch session in English will be scheduled in Hawaii on February 24, 2021 under the direction of Professor FORMAN.
