This blog is not very active anymore due to my interests veering into other directions but I still gladly put up anything T&E related and relevant that people request of me.
On that note, Trade, Law and Development, a student edited journal on International Economic Law published by the National Law University, Jodhpur is issuing a forthcoming special issue on trade & climate change and Mr. Thomas J. Vallianeth, the managing editor, has asked me to publish the call for papers here. I am only too happy to oblige.
For full details and conditions, please also see the Trade, Law and Development website.
Trade, Law & Development CALL FOR PAPERS:
“Climate change is one of the foremost challenges facing the global community today and intersects with international trade in numerous ways. Sustainable development and protection and preservation of the environment are recognized as fundamental goals of the WTO, although its principal objective is to foster international trade. The WTO permits members to avail of exceptions to its principles in order to protect the environment under specific conditions. The on-going Doha Round has further consolidated the WTO’s stance on the environment by launching the first ever multilateral trade and environment negotiations. Moreover, the recent
COP-15, Rio+20 and Earth Summit negotiations have given significant impetus towards achieving a global solution to climate change. There is hope that this multilateral dialogue will materialise into a global climate change deal in 2015 under the auspices of the UNFCCC. This Special Issue, currently scheduled for publication in June, 2014, will provide an ideal platform for deliberation on the relationship between trade and climate change in the run-up to the proposed 2015 global climate change deal. Accordingly, the Board of Editors is pleased to invite
original, unpublished submissions for the Special Issue on Trade and Climate Change for publication as ‘Articles’, ‘Notes’, ‘Comments’ and ‘Book Reviews’. Preference will be given to submissions that espouse perspectives of developing and under-developed countries.
Manuscripts may be submitted via email, ExpressO, or the TL&D website. For further information and submission guidelines, please visit the Journal’s website:
www.tradelawdevelopment.com. In case of any queries, please feel free to contact us at: editors[at]tradelawdevelopment[dot]com”
LAST DATE FOR SUBMISSIONS: JANUARY 31, 2014
T&E Nexus wishes all prospective authors best of luck!
