Researchers Propose Flexible Laws to Handle Climate Change

A new research project, ‘Law in the face of the innovation and risks derived from climate change’ from UC3M’s Public Administration Law Department, deliberates on issues related to climate change that has become a serious law problem for the society.

It explains how the law, which is supposed to generate confidence to clear uncertainty, is faced up with issues evoked by unavoidable inventions. Such inventions are part of the struggle against climate change.

The research suggests that an interdisciplinary teamwork, involving economists, sociologists, legal experts and political scientists, is important to perform a detailed scientific study of society-based technology and science that face rapid elocutionary changes and thereby induce some amount of insecurity. The team will examine the current role of law and find out its constructive role in achieving the social objectives.

The aim of the research is based on three important lines of activity. Initially, the researchers are looking forward to spot the risks and vital factors involved in climate change and the effects that control administrative, public policy and legislative actions intended to prevent and undermine those outcomes. Secondly, they will verify the consequences of the innovations over important legal techniques and establishments to decide the capability and flexibility of the current legal systems to react to such innovations.

Finally, the research is looking forward to prepare new plans that will assure flexibility of law as public policy on issues related to energy innovations, while concurrently upholding its task of providing trust in all the decisions taken by private and public organizations.
