dc.description.abstractAfter Future climate policy regimes may be based on the Kyoto-Protocol or on otherpolicy instruments such as carbon-taxes. Any effective regime based on the Protocolrequires the determination of the concrete contributions by each Party. This involvesnamely the time of contribution and the quantification of the contribution itself. By nowmany proposals exist for the two issues, as for example thresholds like GDP per capitafor the question of timing or emissions per capita for an allocation of emission rights.Based on the two justice principle responsibility and equity of rights that form the basisfor the so-called Brazilian Proposal and Contraction & Convergence respectively, anew approach is developed: Future emission rights are allocated on the basis of equalemissions per capita over time. By so doing not only are emissions per capita (EPC)taken into account during the allocation but also their evolution over time. I show thatnations with high EPC may even be allocated negative quantities of emissions right dueto their historical ?burden?. On the other hand, Parties with low EPC would be allocatedlarge amounts of ?fair air? which can increase the incentive to accept absolute emissiontargets. Even though this approach may currently lack political acceptability, it offersanother analytical reference point for the political bargaining process on futureallocations.en_US
