Save the Reef! Civic Crowdfunding and Public Interest Environmental Litigation

  • Evan Hamman Queensland University of Technology

Abstract

This article looks at the emerging area of civic crowdfunding, a subset of crowdfunding, as a means of financing public interest environmental litigation.  The literature surrounding civic crowdfunding and third party litigation funding is currently underdeveloped.  The link between those areas and public interest environmental litigation takes a further step into the unknown.  As a case study, the Sea Dumping Case presents exciting opportunities for civil society and access to justice, but further research is needed before any firm conclusions can be drawn.
