Global exposure for Stockholm Treaty Lab contestants

Through the collaboration between Stockholm Treaty Lab and the Journal of International Arbitration, all contestants at the Stockholm Treaty Lab will get the opportunity to showcase their innovative ideas on a global level.

By the close of submissions in February 2018, the Stockholm Treaty Lab secretariat had received 16 eligible submissions from contestants. Each of these submissions consisted of a model treaty in support of green investments and argumentation on how it is viable, universal, efficient, enforceable and compatible with other international policies in the field of climate change – and a lot of them contain innovative and out-of-the-box ideas.

The Stockholm Treaty Lab has partnered with Journal of International Arbitration to publish a Special Issue that will showcase the innovative ideas that emerged from the contest. All Stockholm Treaty Lab contestants have been invited to contribute and this represents an opportunity for them to bring their ideas to the next level.

The contestants have been invited to contribute by reformatting the argumentation of their submissions into an academic article, focusing on its innovative aspects: How would the proposed treaty encourage foreign investment in climate change mitigation and adaptation? How would it serve the states’ needs and interests, and facilitate the achievement of climate-change mitigation and adaptation goals? The Special Issue is set to be published in February 2019.

The Stockholm Treaty Lab will announce the teams who are awarded the Prize shortly.
