New Article on Swiss-EU Cooperation on Emissions Trading


Sebastian Meyer published an article analysing how Switzerland and the EU cooperate on emissions trading. The contribution describes the legal and political developments predating the signature of the bilateral agreement in November 2017. The author critically discusses the unilateral measures by the EU, according to which Switzerland was aligned to EEA/EFTA States. The article was published in Edition 1/2018 of the Swiss Review of International and European Law.
