Event Description
Graduate students from all disciplines explore the vast topic of sustainability in a collaborative environment with academic researchers and industry leaders. Through presentations, case studies, short readings, and discussion participants develop an awareness of the issues at stake.

Join us for a session with Fung Global Fellow, Uzuazo Etemire

Uzuazo Etemire is a senior lecturer in the faculty of law at the University of Port Harcourt in Nigeria, and the acting head of the faculty’s Department of Jurisprudence and International Law. After qualifying as a lawyer in Nigeria, he acquired his master’s and Ph.D. degrees in environmental law from the University of Nottingham in England, and the University of Strathclyde in Scotland, respectively. Etemire is a fellow of the Higher Education Academy, United Kingdom, and an alumnus of The Hague Academy of International Law, The Netherlands. His primary research interest lies broadly in the field of environmental law and governance, with a special bias for environmental democratic or procedural rights. At Princeton, he will be engaged in the critical socio-legal examination of the latest treaty on environmental democratic rights — the Escazú Agreement (which came into force in April 2021) — against the backdrop of its promise of a sustainable future for those in the Latin America and the Caribbean region.
