Climate Governance after Copenhagen: Research Trends and Policy Practices
On November 10 2015, The Swedish Institute of International Affairs (UI) arranged a discussion on the changing landscape of global climate governance.
The 2009 United Nations climate conference in Copenhagen is often represented as a turning point in global climate politics, when the diplomatic efforts to negotiate a successor agreement to the Kyoto Protocol failed and was replaced by a fragmented and decentralized climate governance order. In the lead-up to the UN climate conference to be held in Paris in December 2015, we will take a critical look at the changing landscape of climate governance.
What are the most important changes in global climate politics? What implications will those have for the upcoming Paris meeting? Are new key actors emerging?
Speakers: Karin Bäckstrand, Professor at the Department of Political Science, Stockholm University, and editor of a forthcoming Research Handbook on Climate Governance together with Eva Lövbrand. Eva Lövbrand, Associate Professor at the Department of Thematic Studies: Environmental Change, Linköping University.
The seminar was moderated by Gunilla Reischl, Researcher and head of the Global Politics and Security Program at UI.
