Third successful Korea Foundation grant application for CEASG and Faculty of Law researcher
​​Emissions Trading System Linkage, Korea.
​CEASG's Director International prof. dr. Tjalling Halbertsma and dr. Stefan Weishaar (Faculty of Law) have successfully ​ applied with the Korea Foundation for a grant to fund a research project regarding

The grant of ca. USD 20.000 follows two earlier successful applications for the appointment of a lecturer in Korean studies at the Faculty of Economics and Business for 2014-2016 totaling ca. USD 100.000. These grants have resulted in the appointment of Dr. Choi Sunkung at the Faculty of Economics and Business, in affiliation with CEASG, in 2014.

The applications are part of CEASG efforts to advance Korean studies at the University. At the end of 2014 CEASG assisted the opening of a Korea Corner at the Main Library. The Korea Corner is supported with a generous grant from the Embassy of the Republic of Korea, facilitated by CEASG.  The total funds raised in 2013-2014 for these projects amount to ca. USD 170.000.

Project summary:
Over the last decades concerns about climate change have been intensifying yet international agreements on a global solution in the form of a second Kyoto Protocol are not forthcoming. In the absence of such a global solution, an increasing number of national and regional Greenhouse Gas emissions trading schemes address climate change (e.g. EU, China, Japan). Also in Korea an
​​Emissions Trading System (ETS) is being created.

Linking between greenhouse gas emissions trading schemes is expected to generate various benefits including better abatement opportunities, liquid markets, more efficient resource allocation. This research analyses for the first time linking issues for the Korean ETS and informs the international research community on the Korean ETS. It applies a Law and Economics methodology.

In the awarded Korea Foundation-application funding is obtained for inviting experts on Korean Climate Change law, economics and policies to Groningen to workshops and to give lectures at the Centre for East Asian Studies Groningen´s (CEASG) in support of our on-going research and teaching.

Funding is also obtained for study visits to Korea and for a conference on Korean Climate change policy in Groningen.

This project also generates 3 academic papers and an edited book on the Korean ETS.
