This contribution focuses on the concept of “transnational climate change law” in situations involving interactions between distinct legal systems. The discussion highlights the practical dimension of law as a means to address complex global challenges. It also underscores the need for transnational climate change law to consider non-legal processes and sources of normativity, including social practices, to effectively deal with the issue. The contribution explores the legal, regulatory, and ethical considerations involved in addressing transnational climate change challenges, by assembling case studies from both transnational infrastructure projects and climate change litigation.
