A book entitled "The politics of climate change - a European perspective" presents the results of research financed under the Community's specific RTD programme in the field of the environment and climate.

The publication presents the results of research carried out into the politics of climate change in the European Community, particularly with regard to the institutional adaptation which has occurred as a result of climate protection policies. This research work had the following aims:

- To assess the significance of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change in coordinating policy and in creating mechanisms to ensure its compliance;
- To investigate the effectiveness of the Convention in terms of new organizational arrangements and policy outlooks in selected countries;
- To review the significance of the first phase of reactions as a guide to possible further responses to further reductions in greenhouse gases;
- To consider the scope for integrating more effectively the social, economic, transport and industrial dimensions of climate policy both nationally and internationally.

The book examines the situation in both the European Community as a whole, and in the United Kingdom, Germany, Italy and Norway individually. In addition, the book examines the legal basis of Community actions and the institutional context in which this takes place.
