The submissions by contestant teams to the 2017/2018 edition of the Stockholm Treaty Lab showcased out-of-the-box ideas to encourage green investments. Experts from all over the world proposed ideas ranging from using blockchain to crowdfund for green investments to creating inclusive institutions to ensure a just transition to a low-carbon economy. See the summary below.


Summary of ideas



In the spirit of celebrating these great ideas, the Treaty Lab has decided to publish all complete submissions, to the extent that the teams agreed. The submissions consist of the introduction to the team, the proposed model treaty and an argumentation demonstrating how the model treaty meets the assessment criteria.


In addition, for the purpose of achieving the greatest possible exposure for the innovative ideas presented in the 2017/2018 edition of the contest, the Stockholm Treaty Lab has partnered with Wolters Kluwer to compile a special edition of the Journal of International Arbitration. The special issue was published in February 2019 and six teams contributed an article that explains the main innovative ideas in their submission. See the journal here.
