Published 22 June 2015

On the 15 and 16 June 2015, the T.M.C. Asser Institute hosted a workshop on ‘Governing the Global Climate Regime: Issues of Institutional Integrity and Justice’. It was organised by the Griffith University’s Institute for Ethics, Governance and Law (IEGL) from Australia, in collaboration with the T.M.C. Asser Institute and Amsterdam Centre for International Law (ACIL). The workshop started with a paper outlining a framework for good governance and integrity. Subsequent speakers addressed specific elements of the global and other climate regimes, commenting inter alia on governance, integrity and effectiveness issues and addressing, in particular, current weaknesses. From the side of the Asser Institute, dr Wybe Douma presented a paper on the EU governance regarding biofuels. The participants discussed what lessons could be learned from those weaknesses and which good governance solutions might be encapsulated in the future regimes regarding climate change, notably at the global climate summit in Paris at the end of 2015.
