International environmental negotiations
Global collective action is required to tackle climate change.
A sustainable solution to climate change needs strong international governance, as well as measurable local action to implement international commitments at the domestic level. This programme explores the prospects for international collective action on climate change. It aims to shed light on the historical and socio-political factors affecting a global deal on climate change, using methods such as game theory and survey analysis of negotiators’ perceptions of the costs, benefits and risks of climate action.
