5. 22nd BIICL Annual WTO Conference: Climate Change – Border Carbon Adjustment (BCA) Approaches and the WTO. This event will take place online on 15 July 2022 from 09.00 – 17.00 UK time. Why are Border Carbon Adjustment (BCA) Approaches being considered by an increasing number of countries? What are the factors to be accounted for to design a legitimate BCA in terms of both international trade and climate law? How can we utilize BCA as a means of pursuing legitimate interest such as responding to climate change while avoiding the risk of unilateralism? To address these issues, the British Institute of International Comparative Law (BIICL) is hosting its annual event in international trade law, the 2022 BIICL Annual WTO Conference. At the conference, four panels will explore the questions above featuring a wide range of speakers from government, international organisations, academia and legal practitioners. The conference fee is £20. Members of BIICL may register free of charge. The programme can be found here. Register here
