About the Event
With this online event, the Sustainable Development Goals, An-Article-By-Article Commentary, the first comprehensive legal commentary on the SDGs, will be launched which will be published in December 2021 by Verlag C.H. BECK, Nomos Verlagsgesellschaft and Hart Publishing.
The Sustainable Development Goals, An-Article-By-Article Commentary is written and edited by Winfried Huck, Professor for European and International Economic Law, former Dean of Brunswick European Law School (BELS) and former Vice President of Ostfalia University of Applied Sciences.
The event features insights of Professor Winfried Huck into some of the key aspects and approach of the book, a keynote of the distinguished expert Professor Paolo Davide Farah, reflections of renowned scholar Deputy Dean Jason Haynes, and will be concluded with a Q & A session.
The talk focuses on the genesis of the Article-by-Article Commentary, drawing attention to the state of legal interpretation and implementation of the Global 2030 Agenda and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). A legal transition is indispensable to give certainty to everyone implementing the Agenda, which has guided and triggered the far-reaching transformation of the global community to establish the sustainable global partnership of people, animals and the environment since the adoption of the UN resolution in 2015. This legal commentary is intended to provide a manageable form for legal practitioners, policy-makers and judiciary as well. With its clear focus on legally significant interrelationships at the horizontal, vertical and transnational levels of law, the book offers an important contribution to understanding the global and systematic implementation of each of the UN SDGs and renders the all too frequent silo-thinking in law a thing of the past. Challenges of our time, whether it is climate change, increasing conflicts, rising population and urbanisation or the disregard for indigenous wisdom, can only be addressed in a joint effort and require a true global partnership.
We welcome all interested parties, academics, policy-makers, professionals, civil society and business leaders, the public, and students from the first steps of their studies on.
