A Dialogue with Joanne Scott, European University Institute.
Joanne Scott will examine the Paris Climate Change Agreement, looking at its content, architecture and legal nature. She will consider the options faced by President Trump in relation to this agreement including withdrawal, ratcheting down the level of ambition in the U.S. ‘nationally determined contribution’ and renegotiation. She will also highlight the possible emergence of ‘climate change unilateralism’.
