2021 Madame de Staël Prize Lecture

Climate Change in Human Rights Courts: Overcoming Procedural Hurdles in Transboundary Environmental Cases

The Madame de Staël Prize Lecture is an annual scientific event hosted by ALLEA, the European Federation of Academies of Sciences and Humanities. Each year, the laureate of the Madame de Staël Prize delivers an interactive lecture related to their own research and reflecting on current affairs in the European political and scientific landscape.

This year’s laureate, Professor Helen Keller, will deliver a lecture titled ‘Climate Change in Human Rights Courts: Overcoming Procedural Hurdles in Transboundary Environmental Cases’. Her lecture will touch upon the rising number of environmental cases brought before domestic and international human rights bodies, and how courts such as the European Court of Human Rights can overcome the admissibility hurdles that currently prevent climate cases from receiving full consideration on their merits. A discussion will be held after Professor Keller’s lecture, followed by a Q&A session. 

The 2021 Madame de Staël Prize Lecture will take place on 6 November 2021 in a hybrid event during the Berlin Science Week.
