14.-24.10. UEF-UNEP Course on Multilateral Environmental Agreements, Siena, Italy

Time and venue: 14.–24.10. 2019, University of Siena, Italy

The University of Eastern Finland (UEF) and the United Nations Environment Programme (UN Environment), in collaboration with the University of Siena, are jointly organising a high-profile two-week Course on international environmental law-making and diplomacy. The course will take place from 14 to 24 October 2019 at the University of Siena, Italy. The Course seeks to transfer past experience in the field of international environmental law to current and future negotiators of multilateral environmental agreements (MEAs). Each Course is based on a specific theme. The Course also provides a forum to foster North-South co-operation and to take stock of recent developments in multilateral negotiations as well as in the implementation of MEAs and diplomatic practices in the international environmental arena. This is the sixteenth year that the Course will be held and, as in previous years, lectures will be given by experienced hands-on diplomats, government officials, international civil servants and members of academia. The special theme of this year’s course will be “Emerging Issues in International Environmental Law”.

Applications to the course will be accepted until Friday, June 21, 2019. To apply, please see the link below.
