A symposium was held to generate impetus for developing law on responsibility by bringing together leaders engaged in such law to identify new jurisprudence in this field, such as Trusteeship of common goods and governance of resources for public good. Participants included indigenous leaders, scientists, law experts, philosophers, business representatives, economists from Hawai’i, Samoa, France, India, Brazil, Greece, Australia and Aotearoa New Zealand. Responsibility principles of diverse knowledge, common good resources and governance for public good were discussed. Case studies on policy and governance for Freshwater and Climate Change provided specific references for law. A book publication is currently in process.
Case study period: 23-25 November 2014 - 2016
