Climate change and the future of the Paris Agreement

21 March 2018 - 18:00

Lecture in English by Joanne Scott

 

This talk will examine the Paris Climate Change Agreement, looking at its content, architecture and legal nature. It will consider the options faced by President Trump in relation to this agreement including withdrawal, ratcheting down the level of ambition in the US ‘nationally determined contribution’ and renegotiation. It will also highlight the possible emergence of ‘climate change unilateralism’, in the face of US withdrawal from the Paris Agreement. Joanne Scott is Professor of European Law at the European University Institute.
