On the 21st of September, PluriCourts, with generous funding from the Norwegian Research Council and Lovsamlingsfondet, brought together young researchers from around the world for the first postgraduate colloquium on the frontiers of international environmental law. Topics from the creation of a court for the environment, to prosecuting the crime of ecocide at the ICC, to the legal consequences of space debris were discussed.
This workshop will bring together scholars of philosophy, political theory and legal theory who study one or more regional and international courts and tribunals (ICs).

The 25th and 26th of August marked an important event in PluriCourts’ history, the conference on ‘Adjudicating International Trade and Investment Disputes: Between Isolation and Interaction’.
