SMART workshop: an overarching research guide

The theme for this workshop is how to integrate insights from planetary boundaries, as well as fundamental social and human rights, into the Research Guide for SMART.

We will be pinpointing environmental issues most relevant to those planetary boundaries we have or are in the greatest danger of transgressing, and include social and human rights issues into the Research Guide based on macro hotspot analysis on global trade life-cycles.
The venue has moved on Wednesday to Kjerka, 2nd floor, DMV. Here we will also have an open seminar, to discuss the book The Ecology of Law as well as the work-in-progress paper on the regulatory ecology of corporate sustainability.


The registration for the workshop is closed.
