Overview

The Summer School will consist of four days (Monday morning to Thursday morning) of teaching by prominent academics, supplemented by students’ presentation and a roundtable with policymakers. The Summer School’s main goal is to provide participants with the economic foundations of the complex relationship between trade and climate change as well as to dig deeper into the policy aspects that may affect this relationship, such as price-based policies, non-tariff trade policies, technological barriers to trade.

Content

The teaching will be of a ‘learning by doing’ style based on instructors’ papers that are considered frontier in the field, where students can see applications of methodologies/models that they have previously learned.

The instructors are all researchers and prominent academics:

  • Valeria Costantini (Roma Tre University): “Environmental regulations, carbon leakage and trade
  • Fabio Santeramo (Università di Foggia; European University Institute): “Non-tariff measures in agriculture and climate change
  • Giorgia Giovannetti (Università di Firenze; European University Institute): “Green supply chain and trade with Non-EU markets
  • Christoph Böhringer (Carl von Ossietzky Universität Oldenburg): “Potential impacts and challenges of CBAM

Accepted applicants will be provided with readings in advance to support their preparation for the School. Beyond the classes, there will be a roundtable with policymakers as well as students’ research presentation sessions. Accepted applicants will have slots to present their research or research proposal.
