Climate change and global policy regimes: towards institutional legitimacy

Cadman, Timothy, ed. (2013) Climate change and global policy regimes: towards institutional legitimacy. International Political Economy. Palgrave Macmillan Ltd., Basingstoke, Hants. United Kingdom. ISBN 978-1-137-00611-0


Since the creation of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, media and public attention has been focussed on the global negotiations to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Little attention has been paid to the institutions that are charged with the responsibility of developing effective responses. These are often remote from the public, and communities most threatened by global warming are often excluded from decision-making. The contributors to this volume investigate a wide range of institutions within the 'climate change regime complex'. From carbon trading, to food and water availability, energy production, human security, local government, and the intergovernmental climate talks themselves, they find much that should be of concern to policy makers, and the public at large. In doing so they provide a series of recommendations to improve governance legitimacy, and assist public participation in policy deliberations that will affect future generations.
