Dr Stephen Turner lectures at Coimbra University

January 2016

Dr Stephen Turner gave a lecture relating to the relationship between human rights and the environment to masters students of environmental law at Coimbra University in Portugal. (Lincoln Law School has a partnership with Coimbra University under the Erasmus programme.)

Stephen commented that, 'Coimbra University is very impressive. It was founded in 1290 so is seeped in history and the architecture is fantastic. It was particularly interesting discussing environmental and human rights issues with the students, many of whom are Brazilian, they have a very keen and insightful awareness of many of the issues related to globalisation and social justice. I particularly wish to thank Prof. Alexandra Aragao from the Law School at Coimbra for the invitation and making the visit possible'.
