Abstract

This article argues that climate change litigation is an important component of the governance framework that has emerged to regulate how States respond to climate change at the global, regional and local levels. The article examines climate change-related cases from selected jurisdictions including Australia and the European Union and proposes a theoretical framework to shed light on the use of litigation as a regulatory response to climate change.

Keywords: Climate Change, Law, Governance, Litigation
