Sanja Bogojević is Fellow and Associate Professor of Law at Lady Margaret Hall and the Faculty of Law. She read law at King’s College London and Passau Universität (LLB with German Law), as well as at the Collège d’Europe (LLM) before completing her DPhil at Corpus Christi College, Oxford. She has held visiting research positions at the Max Planck Institute for Collective Goods; the New York University School of Law; the University of New South Wales and the UC Berkeley School of Law. Her research interest lies in Environmental Law and EU Law more broadly and much of her work explores interlinks and dichotomies between private and public spheres in these two legal spheres. To this end, she currently works on research projects exploring the role of markets in environmental law, the greening of procurement law, environmental aspects of the Belt and Road Initiative, as well as the adjudication of environmental rights. In 2016 she was awarded the Nils Klim Prize for her outstanding research contribution to environmental law- and emissions trading scholarship. She currently acts as the Analysis Editor for the Journal of Environmental Law.
- DOI: https://doi.org/10.1093/jel/eqt017In this article we consider the economic ideas that have influenced climate disruption law both in the USA and the EU. Although economic thought has led to the adoption of ‘market-based’ mechanisms in both places, its impact has been different: it created regulatory inertia in the USA, and green leadership in the EU—at least with respect to responding to climate disruption. We argue that different culture-specific economic conceptions about appropriate policy and policy analysis may help explain this divergence, thereby illustrating both various economic ideas and their distinct impact on climate law, as well as the need for environmental lawyers to engage with a discipline outside their own.
