Abstract: This editorial introduces a special issue on the role of human rights law in climate litigation, collecting selected papers presented at the workshop ‘Implementing the Paris Agreement: Comparative Lessons from the Global Human Rights Regime’, which took place on 6-7 May 2021 at Sant’Anna School of Advanced Studies, Pisa, Italy. The workshop brought together scholars and legal practitioners in order to share insights and explore the future potential of human rights focussed climate litigation. The idea behind both the workshop and the special issue is to take stock of recent developments in climate change litigation in order to ascertain the role of human rights in this rapidly growing area of legal practice. The aim is to identify future pathways to effectively use human rights arguments in climate change litigation at the international, regional and national level.
