  Add to Calendar 2017-11-14 8:45 2017-11-14 10:45 Europe/Paris International and European Climate Change Law

6 credits

This course will examine the international and European Union legal framework for climate change. It will cover topics such as the legal nature of the Paris Climate Change Agreement 2015, common but differentiated responsibilities between developed and developing countries (climate justice), and market mechanisms for climate mitigation including the clean development mechanism and its successor the sustainable development mechanism.

The course will examine aspects of the EU legal framework for climate change including the European Greenhouse Gas Emissions Trading Scheme which, though controversial, has proved to be a model for similar schemes in other parts of the world.
Faced with U.S. withdrawal from the Paris Climate Change Agreement, the course will explore alternative mechanisms to achieve effective climate action, including EU climate change unilateralism whereby the EU extends the geographical reach of its climate change laws, climate change litigation and the role of cities in the global governance of climate change.

Course Outline

1. The Paris Climate Change Agreement 2015
2. Common but Differentiated Responsibilities and Respective Capabilities (Climate Justice)
3. Market Mechanisms: The Clean Development Mechanism and Beyond

5. EU Emissions Trading Scheme II
