In this episode, Lucy McCann speaks to Dr Stefan Theil, the John Thornley Fellow and Director of Studies in Law at Sidney Sussex College, University of Cambridge, about what role the law can play in tackling the climate crisis.
Stefan discusses the framework he set out in his book Towards the Environmental Minimum. The discussion covers the concept of polycentricity, protections offered by constitutions and treaties, the value of ascribing rights beyond human beings, and the role courts have in environmental issues.
