The Trade Regime as a Complex Adaptive System: Exploration and Exploitation of Environmental Norms in Trade Agreements

Jean Frédéric Morin, Joost Pauwelyn, James Hollway
2017 Journal of international economic law  
We argue that the trade regime seems to evolve as a complex adaptive system, at the edge of order and chaos.  ...  Drawing from a dataset of 280 different types of environmental provisions found in 680 trade agreements, we show how both the trade regime and the norms contained therein unfold by remaining stable (but  ...  environmental measures can be combined with a norm on the regular assessment of the trade agreement's environmental impact to give rise to a norm providing for a broad public participation to the impact  ...

How habits interfere with norm-directed behaviour: A normative decision-making model for travel mode choice

Christian A. Klöckner, Ellen Matthies
2004 Journal of Environmental Psychology  
A field study was conducted in Bochum, Germany, involving 160 participants.  ...  This paper deals with the question how habits can be integrated into a model of normative decision-making based on the work of Schwartz and Howard (1981) .  ...  Our previous study actually showed that the correlation between personal norm and using public transport is reduced to nonsignificance in the presence of a strong habit to use a car.  ...
