Last week, Dr Daria Shapovalova presented a paper at the TRAMEREN conference on Arctic Environmental and Climate Change Governance at the University of Copenhagen. The TRAMEREN is the Transatlantic Maritime Emissions Research Network - international research consortium established between Copenhagen School of Law, the Center for International Law Conflict and Crisis (CILCC), and Center for Enterprise Liability (CEVIA) of the University of Copenhagen and the Frank J. Guarini Center on Environmental, Energy and Land Use Law, New York University School of Law.
The two-day conference explored the topics of Arctic shipping, petroleum activities, climate change, and indigenous rights. Daria’s paper examined the climate case for leaving Arctic oil and gas in the ground focusing on the possibility of petroleum supply regulation through more transparent impact assessment and consideration of global climate goals. Daria is now finalising the paper for submission to publication.
