此活动将用英文进行。

 

从水污染到全球变暖,环境问题影响到地球上每个人、动物、社区和国家。法律能起到什么样的作用来帮助解决环境问题?关于“公共利益环境诉讼”,你知道多少?这是一种普通百姓为解决环境污染案件提起诉讼的办法。你想听听一位美国高级政府律师和一位著名的美国法律学者解释美国的公益诉讼,并讨论该制度与中国的环境诉讼制度有何不同吗?

 

请加入我们北京美国中心的关于环境法的讲座和讨论,嘉宾是美国助理司法部长John Cruden和蒙大拿大学的Jack Tuholske教授。Cruden先生和Tuholske教授将从政府和学术层面讨论公益环境诉讼,其在美国上世纪60年代和70年代成为广受欢迎的方式,以此来让人们关注环境问题,并使污染受害者获得补偿。Tuholsk教授还将讨论中国公益诉讼的发展,并比较美国的经验。

 

6岁以下儿童谢绝参加。


注意:本活动对一般公众。欢迎媒体参加并报导;有关媒体采访细节须直接与美国使馆新闻处取得联系。


This program will be conducted in English.


From water pollution to global warming, environmental issues affect every person, animal, community, and nation on the planet.  What role can laws play to help solve environmental problems?  How much do you know about “public interest environmental litigation,” which is a way for ordinary people to bring lawsuits to address cases of environmental pollution?  Would you like to hear a senior U.S. government attorney and a prominent American legal scholar explain public interest litigation in America, and discuss how this system compares with China’s environmental litigation system?


Please join us at the Beijing American Center for a lecture and discussion about environmental law, featuring U.S. Assistant Attorney General John Cruden and Professor Jack Tuholske from the University of Montana.  Mr. Cruden and Professor Tuholske will provide both government and academic perspectives on public interest environmental litigation, which became extremely popular in America in the late 1960s and 1970s as a way to bring attention to environmental problems and obtain compensation for victims of pollution.  Professor Tuholske will also discuss the development of public interest litigation in China, comparing the U.S. experience with what is taking place today in China.


This program is not suitable for children under 6.
