Submission of Paper Proposals

The organizing committee welcomes proposals addressing the following questions concerning green regionalism with global implications:

1. What theoretical explanations account for the evolution of green regionalism in the realms of trade, investment, or finance?

2. What are the strengths and weaknesses of initiatives aimed at combating climate change and promoting renewable energy within the contexts of the AfCFTA, APEC, CPTPP, and RCEP, as well as Green Economy Agreements, recent partnerships, and frameworks established by the US, the EU, ASEAN, and other Asian countries?

3. Are there best practices of lean integration that demonstrate more efficient contributions to green regionalism? How do the green initiatives of highly developed regimes like the EU and the US interact with those of less developed regional organizations?

4. Will green regionalism enhance or complicate multilateral efforts, such as those under the WTO and the UN?

5. What potential impact might digital trade and AI have on green regionalism?

6. How could green regionalism facilitate inclusive trade?
