Zhaoxia Deng, Research on the Value Pursuit of RCEP’s “Green Development” Clause, Volume 9, Asian Law & Public Policy Review, 1-18, Published on 18/01/2024, Available at


This paper starts with the theoretical source clause of RCEP’s “green development”, examines the preface and main text of RCEP, and analyzes its relationship with “intra generational fairness” from the “development orientation” and “green orientation” of RCEP’s “green development” clause. The analysis shows that the deficiencies in the value aspect have a significant impact on the specific rules for dealing with “environmental and trade” issues, balancing the relationship between “inter species fairness”, “intergenerational fairness”, and “intra generational fairness”. Based on this, this paper proposes the concept of “reciprocal green development”, injecting “reciprocal” value into the “green development” clause and reconstructing the value of the RCEP “green development” clause.

Keywords: RCEP; Green development; Intragenerational fairness; Value pursuit
