The Prevention, Substitution and Precautionary Principles: Conflict and Comity in Chemical Policy

Wednesday, March 25, 2015 13:00to14:30
Room 360, PHI Centre & McGill University, CA, CA

Tim Malloy, Professor of Law and Faculty Director, UCLA Sustainable Technology and Policy Program  

McGill Bronfman Building, Room 360, 1001 Sherbrooke Street West, Montreal

This lecture will examine the role of the prevention, substitution and precautionary principles in emerging forms of chemical regulation in the United States, Canada and the European Union.  Principles are often conflated in the discourse over chemical policy reform, obscuring important differences in their normative bases and operational effects.  Disentangling them provides more complete understanding of their respective implications and limitations, and sharpens the choices facing policymakers and stakeholders. 

This event is free of charge and open to the McGill community. Please RSVP to mdiim [dot] mgmt [at] mcgill [dot] ca by Friday, March 20th
