Riapertura - LEES Winter School 2022


The school focuses on the interplay between the sustainable ecological transition and unacceptable inequalities, aware that the main obstacle to a sustainable model of development is not lack of technology, but lies in the intra and intergenerational allocation of costs and benefits of the transition.

The subject will be addressed in an interdisciplinary and open discussion, that will be organized around three main questions:

considering the Law, Ethics, and Economics perspective, what are the relationships and the needed trade-offs between climate change mitigation, the ecological transition, and intergenerational and intragenerational justice?what are the institutions that can support the ecological transition while also reducing inequalities and informing the allocation of costs and benefits with justice concerns? Is it possible to overcome the traditional separation between social justice and private law institutions (market institutions) including social justice considerations beyond efficiency?can such institutions be incentive-compatible (institutions as equilibria) and be supported by emerging social norms and preferences favorable to norms conformity?



30 participants are expected among brilliant graduate and undergraduate MA students, PhD Students and Postdoctoral Researchers in law, economics, philosophy,  social sciences and environmental sciences.

The fee amounts to EUR 200,00 (22% VAT included) and includes drinks, lunches and the social dinner of Wednesday, 30 November. 

Scholarships are available, please declare if you are interested in your application letter.

Accommodation is not included but the organization can help to find and book local hotels.
