New Perspectives for Climate Justice: District Court of The Hague, 24 June 2015, Urgenda Foundation versus the Netherlands

Abstract : The climate mitigation target of the Netherlands violating the State’s duty of care, it has to be elevated to reach at least -25% in 2020 compared to 1990. This ruling of the District Court of the Hague in the case opposing the \textlesssmall\textgreaterNGO\textless/small\textgreater Urgenda to the Netherlands marks a turning point of climate justice. Although limited in its scope, it contributes to the subjectivization of climate justice actors but also to the objectivization of associated liability, opening the way for a “dialogue of judges” and influence on international negotiations.
