PhD Defense Haomiao Du

29 November 2016

On Friday, 9 December 2016 (12:00), Haomiao Du will publicly defend her thesis entitled 'An international legal framework for geoengineering'.

Abstract

Geoengineering activities can potentially contribute to preventing serious or irreversible climate change and its impacts, but can also involve risks to the environment and human health. Haomiao Du looks at these risks from an international legal perspective. She examines the rules and principles that apply to geoengineering techniques under contemporary international law and proposes a framework for the governance of geoengineering in the future.
