The Department of Economics and the Institute for Policy Research at the University of Bath are hosting a three-day international forum to discuss state-of-the-art academic research on international environmental agreements informed by the insights of key policy-makers and practitioners in the field.
The first Forum was hosted by the University of Exeter in 2011. As before, the second forum will not only involve top quality academic presentations (ten academic keynote presentations and 40 academic contributed papers) but ensures engagement with stakeholders through roundtable discussions and public lectures. Thus, the forum is distinct from many other major international conferences in seeking to connect researchers with those who design and implement policy, and those who are affected by such policy.
