Climate Change and Gender Justice

The Columbia Law School Journal of Gender and Law welcomes submissions for its 2018 Symposium, “Climate Change and Gender Justice,” to be held on Friday, March 2, 2018 at Columbia Law School.

Climate change complicates and exacerbates the gender-based inequities that marginalized communities regularly face. Climate change and gender justice intersect on a wide array of subjects, such as migration, sex trafficking and sexual violence, housing policy, education access, and healthcare, among many others. Without thorough attention to its impacts on these communities, both the immediate effects of climate disaster and the long-term implications of climate change will deepen and calcify preexisting patterns of inequity.

This symposium calls for academics, practitioners, and policy-makers to convene around a proactive dialogue to help chart the path toward a more equitable future in the context of gender justice and climate change. Submissions should consider legal frameworks, advocacy strategies, and/or policy for responding proactively to the gendered implications of climate change.

We encourage all interested authors to respond. Contributions should address legal, regulatory, activist, and/or policy approaches to climate change and gender justice. These topics may address, but are not limited to:



Short-term and long-term housing policy

Intimate partner abuse


National security

Refugee policy

Urban planning

Sex trafficking

The Columbia Law School Journal of Gender and Law will invite selected authors to discuss their work at the Spring 2018 symposium and will publish their articles in the 2018 Symposium Issue, slated for release in fall of 2018.

Authors should submit a cover letter and 1-2 page summary of their proposed paper to Laura Baron, Symposium Editor, at

The deadline for submissions of article proposals is Sunday, November 5, 2017. The symposium will take place on Friday, March 2, 2018, at Columbia Law School. Completed articles will be due by Tuesday, May 1, 2018.
