Handling Global Challenges
Managing Biosafety and Biodiversity in a Global World
EU, US, California and Comparative Perspectives
Welcome to the Website of the Project Handling Global Challenges - Managing Biosafety and Biodiversity in a Global World - EU, US, California and Comparative Perspectives.
The Leuven Centre for Global Governance Studies and LICOS Centre for Institutions and Economic Performance at the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven and the Centre on Institutions and Governance at UC Berkeley have launched a project on EU-U.S-California regulatory cooperation. The goal is to create an international and interdisciplinary group of experts that explores the relationship between the regulatory policies of the European Union, the United States and California on regulation in general and with specific reference to biosafety and biodiversity. After two workshops (one in Europe and one in the U.S.) and two conferences, the project will produce an edited volume that explore how regulatory cooperation between the European Union, the United States and California can be strengthened. The project will draw upon the expertise of faculty from American and European universities, as well as relevant stakeholders. The project is funded by the European Commission (DG External Relations) within the framework of the pilot-program on Transatlantic Methods for Handling Global Challenges.
