Social and Scientific Uncertainties in Environmental Law

8–10 September 2021

European Environmental Law Forum Annual Conference 2021

After much deliberation, the Bournemouth University European Environmental Law Forum (EELF) 2020 Conference Organising Committee and the EELF Managing Board have made the decision to postpone the 8th EELF Annual Conference 2020, which was scheduled to take place September 9 – 11, 2020.
We do not take this decision lightly. The rapidly developing situation with COVID-19 in Europe and globally demands a cautious response to protect the welfare of our attendees and the wider society.
This was obviously a very tough decision, as we were looking forward to hosting everyone in Bournemouth. The EELF 2020 Conference has been rescheduled for 8 - 10 September 2021, and we will be in contact as developments arise.
Submitted abstracts will be automatically considered for the postponed Conference in 2021. Nevertheless, the call is going to be reopened in December and abstracts can be updated and amended until the closing of the renewed call (31 March 2021). Please inform us if you do not wish to upload your submission.
We apologise for the inconvenience, and we are available for questions at
Thank you all for your continued dedication, support, and tremendous effort in putting together EELF 2020.
We could not do it without each and every one of you.
We look forward to seeing the whole EELF  community in Bournemouth from 8 - 10 September 2021.
