International Journal of Public Law and Policy (IJPLAP), Vol. 1, No. 2, 2011

Abstract: Of late climate change movement has become one of the greatest governance concerns both internationally as well as within the individual domestic jurisdiction. Various agencies like the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change have continuously published reports highlighting its causes and concerns, but there is dearth of literature which analyses the social and legal implication of the climatic change. In light of this, the present article analyses the social and legal issues which have caught the attention of legal scholars and the governments of different nations as highlighted by them in different international fora. The article particularly highlights the weak enforcement mechanism of the multilateral environment agreements and the issue of human rights violation resulting from climate change. Finally, the article makes the discussion of current trends and put forward the possible way out to the problem.
