How trade deals can contribute to environmental governance

Jean-Frédéric Morin

Trade agreements increasingly include precise and ambitious environmental provisions. Despite the encompassing nature of these provisions, studies on their drivers and consequences remain scarce. This seminar will discuss findings from a novel dataset of 290 different types of environmental provision in 730 trade agreements. These findings are of particular relevance for research on treaty design, legal innovation, linkage politics, norm diffusion, and treaty effectiveness.
