Pacific Countries Law Advance Regional Policy Towards Migration

It scientifically law proven that regardless of whether we like it or it is warming is global issue. Which is unfortunately constant and it is a threat multiplier and very likely to be cause by human activity.

Since 2008 the year 2008, the average is 21.5 million residents have been force from. Their homes every year due to extreme climate-related events that have a rapid start. The number of these events is likely to rise in the coming years. The same research suggests that events with slow-onset and environmental. Degradation are also factors in the decision of people to relocate.

However, recent failures to provide protection to those who are affect by climate change throughout the globe. Including the Pacific region, reveal a glaring inability to enforce international legal standards (norms and languages) for tackling climate change. In this, there is the lack of respect for the rights of the people seeking protection. Something that lawmakers and policymakers cannot afford to do.

The Traditional Law As Well As Climate Dangers

Funded through AXA Research Fund and United Nations University Institute for Environment and Human Security (UNU-EHS) My current research focuses on the two main legal systems in the Pacific which are the state law, also known as legislation of the nation as well as the Kastom law (the customary, traditional law). It examines the ways in which the differences between the two may create legal issues when implementing international laws relating to climate change, like in the case of 2015’s Paris Agreement.

State or national law regulates executive or legislative legislation, Kastom law governs local law of the community. It’s also call the law of clans, families, or tribes, base on the specific arrangements.

The incorporation of international conventions in national law generally is a top-bottom process that is derive from the executive or legislative level down to the community. A different law system at the local level can have a significant impact on the way of thinking. Laws are often apply through the lens through the lens of Kastom law. What people in communities know about the new laws may modify the purpose or anticipated results of the laws.

Local Population

International laws aren’t always accept by the local population and it is a worldwide issue. But, there are many local communities that do not have an established system of law which could hinder the tubular top-bottom strategy.

In some regions of the Pacific for instance, the planting of trees can lead to an immediate ownership of land that isn’t reflect in national land laws. It is also not a signatory to any international standards governing the management of land

My research found upon a human-rights-base model that emphasizes a bottom-up perspective. It focuses on a more modern interpretation of law that emphasizes the need for openness, flexibility and the practicality of law in helping and implementing climate science. Law , in general, must be consider as a supportive idea rather than a restrictive (sometimes restricting) state-driven process.

My project is scheduled to end in the year 2018 with a third phase of field research where the final data will be completed and the results are published and disseminated. As of now, there are evidence of discordances between the two law systems which affect legislators as well as communities. It is also possible that reforms to the law of the nation’s structural structure might be needed to fix the inconsistencies.

Hybrid Law

The approach employ for this study is known as the hybrid law. It was develop in 2007 to provide a basis for understanding the relationship to climate change as well as the customary legal system in the Pacific that is usually only spoken and difficult to discern or analyze.

Hybrid law is a term use to describe three areas of international laws. Namely environmental laws as well as human rights, the law on refugee and migration. It is a clear indication of the connection between these three branches, and shows the fact that climate change can’t be tackle. Without reference to the human rights of migrants or human rights in direct or indirect ways.

It’s also not sufficient to study the rights of humans without considering. The impact of climate change or the mobility of people without taking into account. The climate in the major cause of causality. People who are displace, migrants or relocated persons. Who are both cross-border and internal are protect by human rights, and the state. Should not adopt or alter policies that hinder their safe passage and access to legal protection.

In accordance with international human rights law and international customary laws, states are bound to protect. The human rights of immigrants or refugees as well as to treat. Them with respect and dignity and to safeguard against their return should they risk being a victim of human rights violations.

The international refugee laws may not mention environmental dangers as causes of conflict or persecution however. It doesn’t relieve states from the obligation to provide for the needs of those seeking. Protection from the effects of climate changes.
