The Council of Europe Assembly Adopts Resolution To Codify Ecocide In National And International Law
Very good news!
On the 25 th January 2023 at the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of
Europe (PACE) in Strasbourg, a resolution to codify ecocide in national and
international law, was adopted overwhelmingly.
Unlike the European Parliament, PACE, which consists of 46 member states, is
not a legislative body, but nevertheless the passing of this resolution gives a
big push forward to the global initiative in recognising ecocide at the
International Criminal Court.
