Project name: LEXAT - Legitimate Expectations and Austria’s Transformation to a Low-Carbon Society and Economy
Project leader: Karl Steininger (project leader for the Wegener Center's part)
Project team: Stefan Nabernegg
Partners: University of Graz, Department of Philosophy and Department of Public Law
Sponsor: Austrian Climate Research Program (10th Call)
Duration: June 2018 - May 2021



The transformation to a low-carbon society will require radical change. This transformation will have significant ethical, economic and legal impacts and will frustrate the legitimate expectations of many agents. This project will analyse those impacts, and the content and normative and legal force of the related legitimate expectations. It aims to thereby contribute to identifying ethically defensible, eco-nomically efficient and legally valid ways of implementing the transformation.
