About the Centre for Environmental Law, Policy and Research
The Centre for Environment Law, Policy and Research, established in August 2016, seeks to promote legal education, research and extension activities in the field of Environmental Law. The Centre aims to take up projects that shall herald the confluence of academic and expert insights on environmental issues pertinent to contemporary times. A major goal of the Centre is to support academic and policy-oriented dialogue that paves the way to critical insights and constructive outcomes in the area of environmental law.
About the Collective for Environmental Action
The Collective for Environmental Action, launched under the aegis of the Centre, provides an avenue for the student body to channelize efforts on environmental issues, with special emphasis on policy and climate change issues. The collective, while closely cooperating with the Centre, aims to raise awareness about climate change, through regular reading circles and the CEA blog, amongst others. The collective, in the near future, plans to conduct an e-survey of the carbon footprints of higher education institutions across India, starting with the Delhi-NCR region.
About the Blog
The Blog is centred around environmental law and policy, with special reference given to the emerging discourse on Climate Change. While such is the primary intention, the blog also encourages and considers work that cuts across multiple disciplinary streams on the given subject matter. The intention behind such interdisciplinarity is two-fold. First, the blog does not wish to be exclusionary in limiting the vocational background of the authors. Second, the blog wishes to expose readers to a wider array of information to be contemplated and engaged with. Hence, we invite the student body to contribute to the blog.
