MJIL Fall 2018 Symposium

Transnational Perspectives on U.S. Withdrawal from the Paris Climate Agreement

September 27, 2018

In June, 2017, President Donald Trump announced that the United States intended to withdraw from the Paris Climate Agreement. Since this whirlwind announcement, international and domestic backlash has been both swift and steady, with previous holdout nations signing on to the Agreement and participating states ramping up their efforts to meet their goals. Nearly a year and a half on, experts in the fields of international and environmental law have endeavored to answer the inevitable questions arising from the U.S.’ planned withdrawal, the most pressing among them being: what happens now?

The Maryland Journal of International Law’s Fall 2018 Symposium, Transnational Perspectives on U.S. Withdrawal from the Paris Climate Agreement, seeks to bring further awareness to this timely and far-reaching issue. The symposium will allow for international and environmental law experts—from lawyers to academics and beyond—to discuss the issues with US withdrawal and the ongoing efforts of state, local, and nongovernmental entities to combat the threat of climate change.
