Climate change policy in the European Union: confronting the dilemmas of mitigation and adaptation?

Source(s):  Cambridge University Press

Drawing on a variety of detailed case studies spanning the interlinked challenges of mitigation and adaptation, this volume offers an account of how different actors wrestled with the complex governance dilemmas associated with climate policy making. Opening up the EU’s inner workings to non-specialists, it provides an unparalleled perspective on the unique way that the EU governs, as well as exploring its ability to maintain a leading position in international climate change politics.

The book: (i) explores the emergence of climate policy in the EU and identifies the key governance choices that informed the design of its climate policies; (ii) reveals how governors in the EU grapple with complex choices and dilemmas in a fast moving and strategically important policy area; and (iii) uses policy analysis to explore how policy could unfold in the future, and what new governance dilemmas this may provoke.
