Book launch for ‘Research Handbook on Energy, Law and Ethics’

On Tuesday 13 December 2022, guests were 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’.


Panel of speakers at the launch of the Research Handbook on Energy, Law and EthicsThe 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.
