ECIPE Seminar: The Rise of Green Protectionism

March 27 2012
Venue: ECIPE, Rue Belliard 4-6, 1040 Brussels
Speakers: Fredrik Erixon
Time: 14:30

Can commitment to Green policy and the rules of open trade sit nicely together? In a new paper, Fredrik Erixon argues they can, but not if industrial policy and promotion hide behind environmental policy. Green protectionism is not about environmental policy, but about using such policies for other purposes. Erixon surveys in the paper the EU’s policy for biofuels and renewable energy, and concludes that core elements of thatpolicy looks more like industrial promotion than a genuine desire to rapidly shift away energy from fossil fuels.

You are cordially invited to a seminar with Fredrik Erixon, a Director and co-founder of ECIPE, where he will present his latest paper on green protectionism.
