What does the climate equity landscape look like after COP 21 has settled the main features of a new international climate regime? And what lessons can we learn about lasting solutions from transitional justice settlements in other fields?

Over the last year Climate Strategies has been running a project to evaluate the lessons that peace and reconciliation processes, and transitional justice experiences more generally, may have for the Paris climate regime. At the “Equity after Paris” workshop on Wednesday, 18th of May 2016, key participants in the project described the progress so far, a range of transitional justice tools and their potential policy relevance, and the project’s emerging conclusions.  Comments and participation were invited from the stakeholders and experienced participants from the climate negotiations, to be taken on board for the final project report.

This workshop was the third of a series organised by Climate Strategies for the project ‘Evaluating peace and reconciliation to address historical responsibility within international climate negotiations’, supported by the KR Foundation. The first two workshops were conducted in partnership with the Hague Institute for Global Justice and the Konrad Adenauer Stiftung respectively, together with experts from both transitional justice and climate communities. This workshop is organised in collaboration with the Centre for Development Research (ZEF).
