In September 2020, Professor Chris Hilson was a discussant for two papers at the virtual IPSA 2020 panel on climate litigation, which was meant to be taking place in Lisbon, but which was reconvened and hosted virtually by the London School of Economics. The papers were interdisciplinary, across Politics, Anthropology, Law, and Geography and covered a wide range of topics within – and approaches to – climate change litigation, including misleading information, human and nature-based rights challenges, Latin America, and public participation.
Professor Chris Hilson acted as an expert witness for Friends of the Earth Scotland at a Public Inquiry into Unconventional Gas (Coal Bed Methane) at Airth, Scotland, 28-31 March 2014. His evidence related to statutory climate change duties and also regulatory gaps.
