This webinar was part of the webinar series “Women in International Law”, which GGS has launched this year and the series aimed at both reflecting on the role of women in the development of international law and bringing female researchers and practitioners to the front seat of discussions, in their different fields of specialty.


In 2019, the International Law Commission (ILC) has included the topic of sea-level rise in its programme of work, recognizing that it has become a global phenomenon, impacting the international community as a whole. Within this context, this webinar discussed the legal effects and implications of sea-level rise for international law, particularly in areas such as law of the sea, statehood and protection of persons affected by sea-level rise.
