“Understanding emissions trading through discourse analysis”

Nils Klim Laureate Sanja Bogojević will present her research at an open seminar hosted by the Faculty of Law at the University of Bergen.

This seminar will discuss how, through discourse analysis, emissions allowance trading may be better understood. More precisely, it will show how, by inquiring into assumptions underlying emissions trading, different understandings emerge of how such trading schemes operate, or are thought to operate, also viewing the role of the state and the market differently. This is important, as it signals that we cannot generalise about carbon markets or environmental law.

The presentation will be followed by a plenary discussion.
