Just published: Journal of International Arbitration on Stockholm Treaty Lab
The Journal of International Arbitration has published a special issue which contains articles drafted by the innovators at Stockholm Treaty Lab. In these articles, they explained their ideas on how to increase green investments using an instrument of international law.
Stockholm Treaty Lab is a global innovation contest that challenged teams from all over the world to draft a new international law that, if adopted by states, has the potential to increase investments in climate change mitigation and adaptation. The competition is an initiative by the SCC and has attracted hundreds of innovators from all over the world. The jury announced the winners in the summer of 2018, which marked the conclusion of the first edition of the competition.
As part of celebrating the ideas and innovations at the competition, the Stockholm Treaty Lab secretariat has collaborated with the Journal of International Arbitration to compile a special issue on the ideas emerged in the competition. The special issue is now published, and it features six articles contributed by the innovators in the contest. In these articles, they explained their ideas on how their proposed model treaty could increase investments in climate change mitigation and adaptation. Both winners of the competition also contributed with an article to this issue.
“The Stockholm Treaty Lab contest demonstrates a level of engagement that gives rise to optimism,” says SCC Secretary General Annette Magnusson in her foreword of this special edition of the Journal of International Arbitration. “The world is simply full of expertise ready to address the climate change challenge. Crowdsourcing provides a tool to channel this ambition into action.”
