Duke Law School
Cosponsored by the Center for International and Comparative Law
The Program in Public Law hosts a panel discussion on how best to address climate change by encouraging cooperative environmental efforts by both U.S. and China. Scholars have observed that solving the climate change problem by limiting harmful emissions will necessitate action by the world’s two largest emitters: U.S. and China. Yet, although the U.S. and China have taken some domestic policy actions, they have not yet agreed to international limits on greenhouse gas emissions. The panelists will discuss potential pathways for the U.S. and China to collaborate on effective climate policy.
Professor Paul Haagen moderates a discussion on this timely topic with Duke Law faculty, including Professors Donald Clarke, Jonathan Ocko, and Jonathan Wiener. In addition, the panel will be joined by Alex Wang, Visiting Assistant Professor at Berkeley Law, who previously served as the founding director of the Beijing Office of the Natural Resources Defense Council, an environmental advocacy organization headquartered in Washington, D.C.
