Join us at the first lecture of this academic year regarding the criminalisation of ecocide! Over the years there have been several situations in which the preservation of our environment was at risk. Think of the nuclear disaster in Fukushima, the deforestation in the Amazon area, the oil exploitation of the Niger Delta and the bee colony collapse. Ecocide law would make these examples of environmental destruction illegal. Since 1972 there have been several proposals to criminalise ecocide. However, today it’s more than 40 years later and the Rome Statute still consists of four international crimes. In the meantime, the devastation of the environment has become an urgent problem. Therefore, several activists believe the time has come to finally include ecocide in the Rome Statute as the fifth international crime.
