Rule of Law and the Environment: Rights, Resources, and Governance

On January 19, 2016, the University of South Carolina Rule of Law Collaborative, in cooperation with the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars, will host "Rule of Law and the Environment: Rights, Resources and Governance," a JusTRAC symposium that will focus on the intersection between rule of law issues and the environment. Discussion will focus on how rule of law plays a role in environmental harm and resource instability and how environment concerns and resource scarcity in turn create rule of law problems. The symposium will bring together leading figures from key U.S. Government agencies, multilateral organizations, policy groups, non-governmental organizations and academia to consider the core issues as well as strategies and efforts to address rule of law challenges in the context of the environment. Visit the JusTRAC Symposia website for the complete program and to register. Keynote AddressJohn C.
