Risk Regulation Seminar: Robert N. Stavins, “International Cooperation to Address Climate Change”
Professor Stavins will describe the ongoing international consultative process through which the IPCC carries out its work and will review the highlights of Chapter 13, based upon the publically available working draft. The chapter surveys and synthesizes the scholarly literature on international policies, institutions, and agreements pertaining to climate change. The chapter’s scope includes climate policy principles and architectures; lessons from existing climate and non-climate international agreements; linkages between such agreements and regional and national policies; interactions between climate change policy and other policies; and the performance of climate policies and institutions.
The Risk Regulation Seminar Series is jointly sponsored by the Penn Program on Regulation, the Wharton Risk Management & Decision Processes Center, and the University of Pennsylvania’s Initiative for Global Environmental Leadership. The Penn Program on Regulation, based at Penn Law, draws together scholars from across six schools of the University of Pennsylvania along with four academic departments within the Faculty of Arts and Sciences.
All Risk Regulation Seminars are free and open to the public. To be added to our event mailing list, email firstname.lastname@example.org For additional information about PPR, visit our website or check out our daily online news source, RegBlog.org.
