Jessica Coria (Gothenburg University) and Jurate Jaraite (CERE) provide an insightful analysis to compare the transaction costs of monitoring reporting and verification (MRV) procedures between the European Emission Trading System (EU ETS) and the carbon tax in Sweden.

5 new PhD's, all from different countries, joined CERE in the autumn of 2014. Here they tell us about themselves, their motivations, expectations, research ideas, and their thoughts about their future.
CERE's annual winter workshop took place from March 30th to April 1st in the beautiful nature of Ammarnäs. As the tradition dictates, the main focus of the meeting was to give opportunities for PhD and Post-Doc members of CERE to present their current works. However, senior members of CERE and invited keynote speakers also presented their research to enrich the content of the meeting.
