Bodansky to lecture at University of Minnesota

November 10, 2010

Daniel Bodansky, the Lincoln Professor of Law, Ethics, and Sustainability at the ASU Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law, will discuss the outcomes of last year’s climate-change conference and the prospects for moving forward during a presentation on Wednesday, Nov. 17, at the University of Minnesota.

Bodansky will speak on “The International Climate Change Negotiations: The Road from Copenhagen,” at the university’s 2010-11 Lecture Series on Law, Health & the Life Sciences entitled, “From Climate Change to the Gulf Oil Spill: Law and Science in Times of Crisis.”

He is scheduled to examine whether the Copenhagen conference was a success, if negotiations at the December conference in Cancun likely will fare better, and the chances of a new legal agreement to supplement or replace the Kyoto Protocol. Bodansky also will discuss the past, present and future of international climate-change negotiations.
