Structures of International law for climate change——promises model and public interest model——
My area of expertise is international law. I have been researching the issue of promises made by states to other states under international law, which appear frequently in the judgments of the International Court of Justice (ICJ) and in states' perceptions of international law, but which have so far been overlooked in international law doctrines. And, in my opinion, the systematisation of international law doctrines has not progressed sufficiently as a result of the neglect of this important element. This awareness of the problem was gained through in-depth research into the law of state responsibility, a branch of international law that regulates all the legal consequences of violations of international law. The present study aims to analyse the Kyoto Protocol and the Paris Agreement on climate change from the perspective of their legal structure, based on my research.


I am deeply grateful for the grant to the social sciences. I hope to make progress in my research with the grant and actively share the results with the overseas community.
