Litigation for Individual and Transformative Change

Joss Saunders and Niall Watson (Oxfam) consider practical aspects of strategic litigation, in different countries, through the lens of cases on the environmental and a gender justice.  The focus is on the strategy, and how the litigation fits into a wider campaigning context. The seminar focuses on how to empower local voice and participation in strategic litigation and how to resolve tensions between the individual and the strategic goals. They explore these themes across different legal fora, from the formal justice system to customary law and international soft law instruments, particularly concerning access to justice through international processes.
