Global environmental governance

Authors: Morin, Jean-Frédéric
Abstract: In the last thirty years, the study of international environmental politics has grown amongst a vast array of debates, and its theoretical innovations have matured. These innovations are rooted in more general international relations theories but are especially designed for the understanding and explanation of global environmental governance. This chapter presents some of them, with a special focus on collective action problems, the design of international institutions, interactions among various international actors, and the evolution of prevalent discourses. Substantial work has been conducted in global environmental politics on the concept of ecological interdependence, the analysis of regimes complexes, the effectiveness of public-private partnerships, and the hegemony of the liberal paradigm. In turn, these theoretical developments from global environmental politics can contribute to other streams of literature in international relations
