The Paris School of Economics is glad to invite you to the “Trade and Environmental Transition” workshop organized by the Globalization and the For a successful Energy Transition Chairs.

The transition to a zero-emissions economy requires a reduction in the use of fossil fuels and the electrification of energy-related processes in all sectors of the economy. This workshop will discuss the importance of an emissions trading system and a border adjustment mechanism to prevent carbon leakage, as well as the role of trade imbalances in achieving this transition.

The Globalization Chair aims to create a privileged forum for reflection, exchange and transfer between researchers and all entities of society interested in the reconfiguration of globalization and its implications. The approach favored by the chair is empirical. The research is characterized by the use of advanced econometric techniques and the exploitation of various databases combining data from companies, but also more recent sources from the media, NGOs or the monitoring of container ships.

The For a successful Energy Transition Chair’s work combines theoretical analysis of mechanisms, simulations, and empirical analysis based on historical data. Surveys and experiments are conducted to better understand the preferences and behaviors of individuals towards the types of instruments that can be considered and their link in building trust in institutions.
