Training School: Human Rights, Rule of Law and Good Governance in Times of Climate Change

From Monday to Friday 6-10 October 2014, the Rule of law Program at The Hague Institute for Global Justice, in partnership with COST has hosted a one-week Training School on Climate Change Justice: Rule of Law through Good Governance.

The aim of the Training School was to educate the participants on social science, legal instruments and mechanisms used to prevent and solve climate change and its consequences, such as migration – with a focus on Europe particularly.

Applicants could also apply for a COST Short Term Scientific Mission (STSM) after they had successfully been accepted to the Training School. STSM applicants were subject to participating in the training school with the focus to conduct further research on climate justice.
