AMENDMENT PROPOSAL
8.1 For an international recognition of the crime of ecocide
Operational Text Line 15
Replace text
On the longer run (for the next Global Greens Congress), we commit to work on a unification of all international environmental treaties (on oceans, coasts, forests, mountains, etc.) in a one single text under the normative framework of “planetary boundaries”. This text will be proposed to the United Nations as a basis for the creation of an International Environmental Court (IEC) in charge of the most serious violations of international environmental law. So as to avoid ICC drawbacks including lack of cooperation by various states, the IEC will depend directly on the UN and thus will be universal; its legal orders will be mandatory and will prevail on national jurisdictions. The IEC and its founding statute will be the core of a binding international environmental law architecture designed to punish and most of all to prevent further destruction of nature.
In the longer run (for a next European Greens Meeting), we commit to work on our vision on a unification of international environmental treaties in a binding normative framework of “planetary boundaries”. We will foster this vision within the European Union and the United Nations as a basis for the creation of an International Environmental Court (IEC) in charge of the most serious violations of international environmental law. The IEC should depend directly on the UN and thus would be universal; its legal orders would be mandatory and shall prevail on national jurisdictions. The IEC and its founding statute should be the core of a binding international environmental law architecture designed to prevent the destruction of nature.
