You are cordially invited to join Malik R. Dahlan, Rosa M. Lastra and Gustavo Rochette to celebrate the launch of their book ‘Research Handbook on Energy, Law and Ethics’

This Research Handbook offers crucial ethical perspectives on navigating the increasingly complex and contested landscape of contemporary energy law. Taking an interdisciplinary approach, it brings together diverse scholarship and expertise from academia, international organizations, legal practice and the judiciary to address wide-ranging issues linking energy and law to ethical drivers such as wealth, peace and war, development, climate change, and use and abuse of natural resources.

The Research Handbook investigates first the governing dynamics of energy, law and ethics, providing a conceptual overview of key topics. It then examines the ethics of financing energy projects, renewable energy transition and climate change mitigation. The final part is a case study of energy, law and ethics in practice. Throughout, the Research Handbook draws on the vital underlying theme of intergenerational equity, offering a toolbox of arguments for framing the law and policies that will shape the future of the planet.

Malik R. Dahlan is Emeritus Professor of International Law and Public Policy in the Centre for Commercial Law Studies at Queen Mary University of London,

Rosa M. Lastra is Sir John Lubbock Chair in Banking Law in the Centre for Commercial Law Studies at Queen Mary University of London, UK,

Gustavo Rochette is Legal and Compliance Officer at Movhera, Portugal, and Teaching Associate in the Centre for Commercial Law Studies at Queen Mary University of London, UK.

The launch will take place at Charterhouse Square (G02 LT Rotblat) from 5 pm and will be followed by a drink’s reception with canapes from 6.30pm.

Copies of the book will be available at the event.
