The working paper focuses on the rising problem of marine plastic pollution and how an international legally binding agreement could be designed to appropriately address the problem.
Ina Tessnow-von Wysocki elaborates in her Master Thesis on existing efforts to prevent plastic pollution and identifies gaps in marine plastics governance. She compares the design of two treaties that aimed to solve transboundary pollution problems and demonstrates the importance of treaty designs for contributing to success of the regime by setting incentives for participation and compliance, as well as deterring non-compliance.
The research for this paper was mainly conducted during a UAS Student Research Stay at the University of British Columbia from August 6th - October 25th 2018.
