About the Authors
  • What can trade regulation contribute towards ameliorating the GHG emissions and reducing their concentrations in the atmosphere? This collection of essays analyses options for climate-change mitigation through the lens of the trade lawyer. By examining international law, and in particular the relevant WTO agreements, the authors address the areas of potential conflict between international trade law and international law on climate mitigation and, where possible, suggest ways to strengthen mutual supportiveness between the two regimes. They do so taking into account the drivers of human-induced climate change in energy markets and of consumption.

    • Integrates law, political economy and economic scholarly thinking about global services trade liberalisation, regulation and negotiations to give an overview of current issues of implications of international trade for climate change
    • Interdisciplinary approach allows reader to understand the interface between climate science, environmental economics and trade law
    • Commentaries critically discuss certain chapters of the book and add insight on how the post-Kyoto regime might develop

    'The volume covers a wide range of topics and assembles highly reputable contributors. It offers a good overview of the interface between climate change mitigation and world trade law, which will remain highly relevant for years to come … constitutes an impressive collection of scholarship which will be a valuable reference point, both in the design phase of future unilateral and multilateral measures and when such measures reach the litigation stage.' Roland Ismer, European Yearbook of International Economic Law
