Biodiversity litigation: Review of trends and challenges

Razzaque, Jona; Futhazar, Guillaume; Maljean-Dubois, Sandrine


Guillaume Futhazar

Sandrine Maljean-Dubois


In the chapters of this book, we have learned a great deal about biodiversity litigation in all its forms. We have seen cases arising in all continents except Antarctica. We have seen jurisdictions where International Biodiversity Law (IBL) significantly shapes litigation and jurisdictions where the very existence of IBL seems irrelevant in resolving biodiversity disputes. We have seen jurisprudential practices in different legal traditions, common law, or civil law. We have seen disputes in federal states and in unitary ones. Yet, it is fair to say that we still only know a fraction of what the topic entails. This synthesis gathers the key insights from our case-studies and aims to answer the questions we raised in the introduction to this volume.
