Climate Change Law

Provided by: Tilburg
Master's degree (EQF level: 7)

Climate change is the most difficult and important international environmental problem that the world faces today, and probably will be for decades to come. This course introduces you to climate change and to climate law, which includes the legal instruments aimed at reducing climate change and its risks. Not only is climate law itself interesting, it also offers a case study of a difficult problem that cuts across all sectors of society, whose legal response is complex and multi-level. Furthermore, understanding responses to climate change requires a somewhat interdisciplinary approach to policy. Thus, the class will help you comprehend how the economics, ethics, and politics intersects with the law. This course takes place in Block 3, the first half of semester 2 of 2 (Spring/Summer). "
