In negotiations for international agreements, finding the delicate balance between ambition that matters and the fair and equitable treatment of the diverse parties is the vital factor of success. The Paris Agreement has addressed this interplay in a particularly intricate way. In global climate policy, ambition to cope with and avoid further damages is high. At the same time, fairness and burden-sharing have been the grand ethical question debated among parties and signatories.

In the 22nd Käte Hamburger Lecture, Christina Voigt, Professor at the Department of Public and International Law, University of Oslo, explained the importance of this balance for the effectiveness of the Agreement and discussed its promises and potential limitations.
