SMART is proud to have project partner Clair Gammage introduce her fresh of the press edited volume 'Sustainable Trade, Investment and Finance'. The book, edited together with Tonia Novitz, both University of Bristol, very timely explores how the contours and facets of economic, environmental and social sustainability are reflected in the legal norms that govern trade, investment and finance.

SMART has identified a number of barriers, gaps and incoherencies that prevent market actors from contributing to sustainability, as well as some tentative positive trends that need to be strengthened. In this workshop we will concentrate on identifying ways forward towards corporate sustainability, with the aim of developing reform proposals that will contribute to policy coherence for sustainability.
In this workshop, SMART wishes to examine the interactions between policies and to what extent these either enable or constrain the areas of EU sustainability policies, Foreign Direct Investment and the EU Sustainable Finance Initiative, as well as the regulation of the governance of global value chains.
The topic of this year’s PhD seminar is "Business: Law, Policies and Theory".
In October, SMART will be hosting a seminar in Oslo together with the Sustainable Societies Research Group at Molde University College, bringing research and reality together to critically assess sustainable finance in a perspective of the long term, through practical and theoretical insights.
We need the contribution of all market actors: business, citizens, investors, and the public sector to acheive sustainability. However, a number of barriers, gaps and incoherencies that prevents market actors from contributing has been identified by the SMART Project. At this conference we will discuss how to facilitate the transistion to sustainability, with the aim of idenitfying concrete proposals. Look forward to seeing you there!
On 2-5 December we have several events lined up in Oslo for our final SMART week summing up nearly 4 years of SMART research. We look forward to seeing you there!
Join us in Oslo in December to explore the complex, interconnected questions concerning social justice and human rights in the pursuit of sustainability, with a particular focus on the role of business and of state regulation of business.
