Climate Backlash: Contentious Reactions to Policy Action

Project description

Shedding light on climate backlash

Currently, climate change governance theory is unable to explain sudden and impactful reactions to climate policy actions known as climate backlash. Contributing to this field, the EU-funded BACKLASH project aims to empirically study contentious reactions to climate policy actions by examining cases across and within advanced industrialised countries. This will consist of a two-level study of 36 OECD countries and four in-depth national cases of climate policy and reactions to it. Project outcomes will inform the design of ambitious climate policy, and pave the way for new approaches to the interdisciplinary study of policy-society dynamics in addressing contested collective problems.
