Putting a price on carbon emissions: limits under international climate change law

The article (that will be circulated to you before the discussion) explains why two of the most discussed mechanisms used to mitigate carbon leakage are incompatible with international climate change law. The first mechanism includes exemptions and free allowances in favour of energy-intensive industries. The second mechanism consists in the adoption of carbon border adjustment measures. In this article, I argue that these two mechanisms, when adopted by developed countries, are very likely to be incompatible with the UNFCCC and the Paris Agreement.
