Assembly of Judges

The judges of the International Rights of Nature Tribunal hearings are personalities among which many have a direct connection to or defend the threatened ecosystems that are part of their cosmology or traditional knowledge. The diversity and interdisciplinarity of these panels stem from the varied backgrounds of the judges, who are eminent academics, practitioners, activists, lawyers and jurists. Here, you can explore the esteemed panels of judges from past Tribunals. They are organized according to the type of tribunal international-regional-local, and chronologically. 

Collectively, these judges form the International Rights of Nature Judges Assembly, the decision-making body of the Tribunal. They collaboratively decide on future hearings, panels, and interventions of the Tribunal and provide strategic guidance to its initiatives.
