This is an advanced tutorial for students attending the 22nd Conference of the Parties to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change in Marrakech, Morocco. The tutorial will focus on the process of treaty implementation, specifically examining the processes underway to bring the Paris Agreement into force. We will work principally with primary documents and focus on all the major areas for implementation of the landmark new agreement. Students will choose one or more elements of the Paris Agreement on which they will develop significant expertise, which they will share with other students in the delegation through regular presentations. Students will be evaluated based on several presentations, a briefing document on a particular element of the agreement, and daily written analysis of negotiating sessions during the COP.
