Abstract

The paper discusses the relationship between the imposition of international carbon emission treaties and economic inequality. The paper draws a positive correlation between carbon emission treaties and economic inequality, the matter is most pronounced in developing countries. The substantiation, realization, and understanding of the relationship is crucial in the modern context. Following the pace of globalization, a thorough comprehension of the concept of inequality is quintessential to the resolve of international conflicts and/or affairs. As countries grow increasingly correlated, it is in the stakeholder’s common interest that historical legacies can be objectively evaluated and thus have the inter-nation historical discrepancies recognized and thereby worked upon; thus, the carbon emission historical discrepancy and the treaties that further inequality across the globe is of utmost importance to be researched, and discussed upon.
