Amsterdam Center for International Law (ACIL), Amsterdam, 7-8 October 2015.

This workshop will take up the task to provide insight into such how alternative modes of regulation (hybrid and private) and different forms of regulatory instruments (command-and-control, market-based, suasive) can complement the traditional approach of regulation through international agreements.

The purpose of the workshop is to further research on instrument design and implementation. In order to do so, the analytical tool of ‘smart mixes’ will be used. The term ‘smart mixes’ here refers to combinations of a variety of regulatory instruments on all levels of governance, which aims at furthering the coherence and effectiveness of international environmental regulation.

This workshop is organized within the framework of the research project ‘Smart Mixes in relation to Transboundary Environmental Harm’.

If you are interested in participating, please send an email to Martine van Trigt at as soon as possible.
