The seventh annual meeting of the Society for Environmental Law and Economics (SELE) will be held on 21-22 May 2015, at the University of Groningen, the Netherlands.
We hope to build upon the great success of past SELE meetings, and continue to build a community of scholars interested in working at the intersection of law, economics and environmental issues. We welcome both theoretical and empirical papers, ranging from local to international themes. While all topics are welcomed, this year we in particular invite scholars to submit papers on how to balance sustainability and competition: should competition authorities allow for restrictions of competition that benefit the environment?
CONFERENCE DETAILS: In a 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. Our goal is to create a program that includes a variety of disciplinary perspectives, ideally consisting of about 20 papers over the two-day period.
As in past years, no funding will be available for travel or lodging expenses, but food and drink will be provided during the workshop for the participants and a dinner will be hosted on the first day of the conference.
FURTHER INFORMATION: Further information regarding accommodation, the conference program and other logistic matters will be posted on http://www.envlawecon.wordpress.com. Inquiries can also be sent to (this year's local organizer) Edwin Woerdman (firstname.lastname@example.org).
PAPER SUBMISSION PROCEDURE: To submit a paper, please email a Word or PDF file to Edwin Woerdman at email@example.com with the subject line "SELE SUBMISSION", by November 17, 2014. We will review all the papers and get back to you by December 15.
