Project Details and Goals
- Develop the conceptual basis for understanding transnational climate change governance and the central issues of authority, legitimacy, representation and accountability
- Systematically map the nature and extent of transnational governance arrangements for climate change and develop a typology to evaluate the significance of this phenomenon
- Analyse and compare case studies of transnational governance arrangements for climate change in order to understand their functions, effectiveness and limitations
- Engage with the wider research and policy community to consider the implications of transnational climate change governance for post-2012 climate policy, for the environment and for our understanding of global governance.
