Future generations, wildlife, and natural resources – collectively referred to as “the voiceless” in this presentation – are the most vulnerable and least equipped populations to protect themselves from the impacts of global climate change. This presentation ﬁrst identiﬁes the common vulnerabilities of the voiceless in the Anthropocene era. It then proposes how the law can evolve to protect their interests more effectively through a stewardship-focused and rights-based system derived from the mandate inherent in the concept of sustainable development.
This presentation, sponsored by the Monmouth University Council of Endowed Chairs, is drawn from Professor Randall S., Abate’s forthcoming book, which will be published by Cambridge University Press in October 2019.
