Kick-Off-Event of the CAS Research Group “The Institutional Architecture for a 1.5 °C World” led by Prof. Dr. Ann-Katrin Kaufhold and Prof. Dr. Rüdiger Veil (LMU).

Many states do not achieve their self-imposed climate goals. This fact indicates that the interplay between institutions and tasks in the field of climate protection is less than optimal at present. The workshop examines the correlations between the legal architecture of an institution and its potential to contribute to climate protection. “Classic” institutions (parliaments, supreme courts, central banks) of different national legal systems and the EU will be compared and contrasted with institutions that were created or designed specifically for the purpose of climate protection (Platform on Sustainable Finance, International Sustainability Standards Board, European Financial Reporting Advisory Group).

Climate Protection needs strong Institutions

Panel discussion on Donnerstag, 9 November, 6 p.m.

Speakers: Veerle Colaert (KU Leuven), Seraina Grünewald (Nijmegen), Kirsten Schmalenbach (Salzburg), Ann-Katrin Kaufhold und Rüdiger Veil (LMU).
