Leerdoelen
Omschrijving The course will consist of several interactive and research driven meetings where we analyse and discuss Climate law and policy. Students do independent research and give presentations. Topics covered include:

- Climate science and Paris
- Smart instrument mixes
- Linking of Climate policies (EU, Korea, China)
- Linking of Climate policies (US climate policy)

Given the limited time and scope of the course our ambitions are modest. We offer an introduction into the complexities of Climate law and policy. At the end of the masterclass students will be able to engage in academic discussions on climate change, evaluate the usefulness of different instruments in different circumstances and have a basic knowledge on national climate change policies and the challenges posed by ‘linking them’.
