This chapter maps the intersections between international climate change law and three areas of international law. Given the breadth of its causes and effects, the issue of climate change intersects with many areas of international law. And while there are other areas of intersection, the three topics considered in this chapter illustrate the crosscutting nature of climate change as an issue. These issues are: human rights law, the law relating to displacement and migration, and trade law. Each of them has given rise to significant scholarly debate and international practice, making them especially well-suited to exploring the interactions between international climate change law and international law more generally.
