Confronting the free trade model: Trade treaties, energy and Green New Deal(s)

The Rosa Luxemburg Stiftung webinar series Everything up for grabs: The Green New Deal(s) the world needs now continues on June 4, 2020. 

This session will explore the ways in which current trade and investment treaties interfere with the Green New Deal (GND) vision of a broad social and economic transformation to address the joint crises of climate change and inequality. These problems will be illustrated by examining renewable energy disputes under the WTO and investment disputes under the Energy Charter Treaty. The session will discuss ways to work around trade treaty obstacles to climate action and explore how the multilateral system must change to support the transition to a just, decarbonized world.
