Climate Change, Sexual Violence, and Genocide


Wednesday, March 28, 7:00-9:00 pm

Mitchell Hamline School of Law, Kelley Board Room

875 Summit Avenue, St. Paul, MN 55105


Climate change is bringing more frequent and severe droughts and weather disasters such as flooding, tsunamis, hurricanes, and fires. The global population will keep increasing despite land and energy resources becoming scarcer, causing tensions to rise, which leads to genocide and mass atrocities.


Women are more affected by disasters because of less access to resources, safety, and information. Women and girls face an increased risk of sexual and gender-based violence because of displacement during and after disasters.


Darrow Anderson and Hanna Valento, Benjamin B. Ferencz Fellows in Human Rights and Law at World Without Genocide, will examine climate change and its impact on conflicts in Rwanda, Darfur, Syria, and Burma/Myanmar.


Abigail Hencheck and Erinn Valine, also Ferencz Fellows, will discuss international and national tribunals that have addressed sexual violence in conflict brought about by climate change.


Open to the public; no reservations are necessary. $10 general public, $5 students and seniors, and free to Mitchell Hamline students. $25 for two standard CLE credits for lawyers.
