New report: The role of international law and arbitration in promoting and protecting green investments
The SCC has published a report from the conference “Bridging the Climate Change Policy Gap: The Role of International Law and Arbitration”, organized jointly by the SCC, the International Bar Association, the International Chamber of Commerce and the Permanent Court of Arbitration.
Held in Stockholm on 21 November 2016, the conference explored whether international law could bridge the “policy gap” between the objectives and the outcomes of the international climate change agreements, and whether international arbitration could serve as an enforcement mechanism in the climate change context. Nearly one hundred participants attended the conference, including climate scientists, economists, policy specialists, investors, and lawyers from around the world.
Speakers included David W. Rivkin (President of the International Bar Association), Johan Kuylenstierna (Stockholm Environmental Institute), Hal Harvey (Energy Innovation), Tzeporah Berman (York University), Patrick Obath (Adam Smith International), Catherine Redgwell (Oxford), Dennis van Berkel (Urgenda Foundation).
The SCC will continue working toward a sustainable future through its Treaty Lab Prize.
