S. Faizi, Ecocides: On the Need for an Environmental Security Council (ESC), Capitalism Nature Socialism (July 30,2021)

The community of nations should criminalise ecocide and create a mechanism to prosecute the culprits. This should be done by establishing an Environmental Security Council as a democratic, independent multilateral body, without overburdening the International Criminal Court with this new agenda when ICC itself is in dire need of strengthening to effectively enforce its original mandate.The paper sets the basis for addressing ecocide as an international crime and outlines the framework for establishing an Environmental Security Council to address this.
