SOLM196 Trade, Climate Change and Energy: EU and International Perspectives (Sem 2)

Module Description

This course examines the interface of climate change, international trade, and energy law, with a view to addressing the question: How can we increase economic well-being and expand trade, while promoting the optimal use of the world’s energy resources and protecting and preserving our shared environment? It will seek policy solutions linking climate change, trade, and energy law in the context of the World Trade Organization (WTO) by drawing upon findings in three interlinked sections: 1) the nexus between energy and international trade law/WTO law; 2) the interface between climate change and WTO law; and 3) the link between energy and climate change in the context of WTO law/international trade law.
