Abstract

Politics of Climate Change provides a critical analysis of the political, moral and legal response to climate change, in the midst of significant socioeconomic policy shifts. Evolving from original EC commissioned research, it examines how climate change was put on the policy agenda with the evolution of the United Nations Framework Convention and the subsequent Conference of Parties, and considers the uncertainties of climate futures.
Examining the policies of climate change in Europe from the perspective of both practical polities and institutional redesign, this book contains important analysis of the significance of institutional change for international agreements, and of the role of international law in determining national policies
