Editorial: Special Issue Managing Responsibilities for Climate Change Risks



The Special Issue brings together contributions examining concrete case studies on managing responsibilities for climate change risks around the world. It aims to generate new and interdisciplinary knowledge on potential approaches to risk allocation, adaptation and resilience, and explore normative aspects of burden-sharing in the development of rights and obligations to respond to climate change. This Special Issue was coordinated by the University of Sydney Law School and Utrecht University School of Law under the 2019 Utrecht University and University of Sydney Partnership Collaboration Award. The grant recipients and ULR guest editors from Australia are Katherine Owens, Director of the Australian Centre for Climate and Environmental Law (ACCEL) (Sydney University Chief Investigator), and Madeline Taylor (Macquarie University) Deputy Director of the Centre for Energy and Natural Resources Innovation and Transformation (CENRIT). The guest editors from the Utrecht University Centre of Water, Oceans and Sustainability Law (UCWOSL) are Natalie Dobson (Utrecht University Chief Investigator), Herman Kasper Gilissen (UCWOSL Senior Researcher) and Marleen van Rijswick (UCWOSL Director).
