Abstract [en]

Clare Heyward and Jörgen Ödalen focus on the need for institutional reform to address climate-related injustice for a particular group of victims. They are concerned with the potential lacuna in international law concerning those citizens of states whose entire territories could be submerged by rising sea levels. Heyward and Ödalen refer to these as the the ‘territorially dispossessed’ and argue that they should be provided with a ‘Passport for the Territorially Dispossessed’ which gives its holder a right to choose their new nationality. They compare their proposal with competing ‘quota’ schemes and argue that the PTD is less unjust because its principle of free choice allows the territorially dispossessed to retain a larger measure of control over their destiny.
