Robert Stavins, Director of the Harvard Project on International Climate Agreements conducted a seminar hosted and organized by the International Peace Institute in New York City on June 21, 2010. His talk, entitled "Climate Change Policy after Copenhagen," addressed the outcomes of COP-15 in Copenhagen, the institutional context of international climate policy, and prospects for domestic climate policy in the United States. The seminar was co-sponsored by the Permanent Missions to the United Nations of Pakistan and Sweden. There were about seventy-five participants—primarily representatives of permanent missions.
Commenting on Professor Stavins' talk were Mohammed Reza Salamat, Senior Programme Officer in the U.N. Secretary-General's Climate Support Team, and Scott Barrett, Lenfest-Earth Institute Professor of Natural Resource Economics at Columbia University. Warren Hoge, Vice President for External Relations at the International Peace Institute, moderated the panel. (Mr. Hoge previously served in various capacities, including as Foreign Editor, at the New York Times for almost thirty years.)
