Episode 25 - Can Courtrooms Help in the Fight Against Climate Change? How much can the world's judges and courtrooms help us to prevent worsening climate change and repair the damage that has already been done? This and other questions are what we address today in Episode 25 as we discuss the role of courtrooms in addressing climate change with a judge that has written some of the best judicial decisions to date on climate change issues. New Zealander Bruce Burson has issued knowledgeable and persuasive decisions that delve deeply into precise what rights people may or may not have to seek asylum because of the effects of climate change. Speaking in his personal capacity from the outskirts of Auckland, New Zealand, Bruce is the Manager of the Refugee and Protection Stream at the New Zealand Immigration and Protection Tribunal. His world-renowned decisions in the Teitiota and AC Tuvalu Cases are cited throughout the world as some of the leading judicial reviews of how climate change issues can be addressed in the world's courts of law. If you would like to read these and other decisions, please have a look at: Jointly Venturing would again like to thank Bruce for joining us in Episode 25 and wish him all the very best in his work for the Tribunal!
