International Law-Making: Actors in Shipping and Climate Change (InterAct)

InterAct is a research project that studies the actors involved in international-law making processes concerning the climate change impact of shipping. InterAct will contribute to new academic insights into the theory of actors in international law and law-making, while providing an understanding and a way forward to address maritime transport climate-related impacts. Specifically, InterAct focuses on market-based measures and the energy transition for international maritime transport, and the regulation of shipping in the Artic.
