The third annual meeting of the Society for Environmental Law and Economics will be held on June 24 and 25, 2011, at the University of Amsterdam in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. The meeting is sponsored by the Amsterdam Center for Law & Economics and the Amsterdam Center for Environmental Law and Sustainability.
|Start date||24 June 2011|
|End date||25 June 2011|
Just as environmental problems tend to run across artificial political boundaries, the Society for Environmental Law and Economics (SELE) is, as the name implies, a truly interdisciplinary organization bringing together legal scholars, economists, and interested researchers in other fields to address important environmental issues that inevitably cut across artificial disciplinary boundaries. SELE includes economists, legal scholars, and other scientists among its members, and we encourage broad participation from all relevant fields of study.
We hope to build upon the great success of past meetings, and continue to build a community of environmental scholars interested in working in the intersection of law, economics, and environmental or natural resource issues.
In the spirit of collegiality, the meeting will take place in a workshop format, in which all sessions will be plenary. We strongly encourage all attendees to attend all presentations.
The deadline for paper submission was November 1, 2010.
