DS is delighted to announce that Routledge/Taylor & Francis have agreed to publish a new edited volume on the legal content and meaning of The Peninsula Principles on Climate Displacement Within States, which were approved in August 2013.

The 10-chapter book, which is prepared in a manner similar to a legal commentary, contains detailed legal analysis of each of the 18 Peninsula Principles. It also contains an in-depth introduction exploring the phenomenon of climate displacement, a chapter on the legal drafting history behind the Peninsula Principles, and offers a series of recommendations and conclusions about how the Peninsula Principles can be further applied to concrete cases of climate displacement the world over. A Supreme Court Justice of the Victorian Supreme Court in Australia, Kevin Bell, provides an insightful and inspirational foreword to the book.

The book will be available in early 2015 and its publication date will be announced here on the DS website. Stay tuned for further developments.

Further information about the Peninsula Principles, and various translations, are available here.
