Libyan sea interceptions. COP27. Reparations in Namibia.

With the war in Ukraine and the ongoing devastation caused by the climate crisis, 2022 has been fraught with increasing instability. Yet, even as these crises point to dangerous uncertainties, we at ECCHR have also seen a powerful resurgence of collaborative human rights work – happening in-person, on-location and with those affected – with more and more people joining the struggle.

This past year, ECCHR’s efforts to address climate change culminated in a case against a Swiss cement firm about the impact of its massive CO2 emissions on an island community in Indonesia, and at COP27, we also contributed our legal expertise to discussions on climate litigation and “loss and damages.”

In November, we organized the first major conference following the publication of the German-Namibian Agreement, with critical German and Namibian stakeholders.

We also submitted a Communication to the ICC to address the role of EU officials in the interception of refugees and migrants at sea and their return to a system of abuse in Libya. I invite you to read more about our work in this newsletter – which is and remains possible only thanks to your support.
