Call for Papers for Conference in South Africa

North-West University in South Africa, Widener University in the United States,  and I are organizing a symposium to be held in South Africa during the week of April 11, 2016, on constitutional and other rights-based approaches to the promotion of environmental protection.   The symposium will examine good practices, provide a high-level platform for discussions among academics and practitioners, and propel the development of training materials to advance rights-based approaches to environmental governance.  For more information, click here.  To apply to participate, submit a one-page summary of your research on or before November 1, 2015, to Mr. Caiphas Soyapi at
