From Confrontation to Collaboration? CBDR and the EU ETS aviation dispute with developing countries

This Oxford Energy and Environment Brief is the first of two papers by Benito Müller on the theme of ‘Equity and the Durban Platform’ as recently presented at the Centre for Policy Research in New Delhi. The Brief focuses on the question of how to operationalize the principle of common but differentiated responsibilities and respective capabilities as enshrined in Article 3.1 of the UNFCCC. It does so by looking at the controversy about the introduction of international aviation in the EU Emission Trading Scheme as a case study and uses the proposed operationalization to suggest options for compromise in that dispute.
