We have five new positions within the project ‘Strategic Climate Litigation’s Direct and Indirect Consequences for Democracies’. Apply now to join us in September at the Amsterdam Law School as one of four PhD candidates and one Postdoc position.

Direct and Indirect Consequences on Democracy

Within the project we develop the missing theoretical framework that captures the direct and indirect consequences of strategic climate litigation for the democratic process.

It investigates, based on the same multi-method approach to strategic climate litigation in 4 national (Germany, France, Netherlands & UK) and 2 European jurisdictions (EU & European Court of Human Rights), how strategic climate litigation interacts with the democratic process and how its (neglected) democratic potential could be realized.

This project is funded by an ERC Consolidator Grant awarded to Christina Eckes, Professor of European Law at the University of Amsterdam.
