The law as an instrument for climate protection: the case of integrated approaches to understanding emissions trading
Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceeding › Chapter › Professional
1) Typical legal concepts such as procedural rights and enforcement deserve combined studies in order to examine how to design and apply the law.
2) In-depth understanding is needed of the relationship between natural science and the legal discipline, not only in view of the justification that climate science provides for climate regulation, but also in view of the way the law can deal with scientific uncertainties.
3) Multidisciplinary research is needed to understand whether market-based regulatory interventions are suitable for developing countries, or whether other regulatory instruments are more suitable for countries with a potentially weak legal infrastructure.
