Meet one of the contestant teams: The second story

As of today, more than thirty teams have registered to compete at Stockholm Treaty Lab. This is a story about one of them.

The deadline to register to compete at the Stockholm Treaty Lab is approaching. More contestant teams have registered, representing a wide range of expertise and regions of the world.

The Climate Change and International Law Taskforce team is one of them. The team consists of five team members based in the United States, France and Singapore. Led by Kabir Duggal, Senior Associate at Baker McKenzie (New York) and lecturer-in-law at Columbia Law School, the team members bring together expertise in among others international law, climate change justice and sustainability.

Mr Duggal explained to the SCC why they are taking up this challenge:

“It is a competition like no other as it opens the opportunity to young practitioners like us in international law, science, international trade, public policy and investments, whose sense of idealism has the potential to influence policy-making at the international treaty level. That is the inspiration and ultimately, the reward for making a real, meaningful difference that keep us fired up for this competition.”

This is the second time a story about one of the contestant teams is published here, see the first story here. The registration closes on 31 October 2017.
