GSE Law congratulates Atty. Selina Irene O. Ablaza, Junior Associate, on the publication of her paper entitled “Not a slow burn: the urgent need for a protection mechanism for environmentally displaced persons – The Philippines” on the Asia Pacific Journal of Environmental Law.

The first draft of the piece was originally written for her Refugee Law elective class with the University of the Philippines College of Law under Prof. Jaqueline Espenilla.

The articles explains that persons displaced by climate do not fit the traditional definition of “refugees” and should be treated as a separate category of persons of concern and urges the need for immediate legislation. The article further discusses existing international legal framework and domestic legal framework in the Philippines for environmentally displaced persons, as well as recommendations for interim measures and future legislation.
