Consultation on Definition of Ecocide

Updated: Apr 20


On 17 November 2020, the Stop Ecocide Foundation announced the launch of the Independent Expert Panel for the Legal Definition of Ecocide (“Panel”), following a request by Swedish parliamentarians for a legally robust definition of “ecocide”. The objective of the Panel is to develop a definition of ecocide that can be proposed, by a State, as an amendment to the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court (“ICC”).
