Coalitions in the Climate Change Negotiations

Lundi 12 avril de 17h à 19h

Atelier interdisciplinaire de recherches sur l'environnement (AIRE)

La direction scientifique de Sciences Po a le plaisir de vous inviter  à la prochaine séance de l’Atelier interdisciplinaire de recherche sur l’environnement (AIRE), co-organisée avec le séminaire “Environnement et relations internationales” du CERI.

Lundi 12 avril de 17h à 19h
Coalitions in the Climate Change Negotiations

Au cours de cette séance Carola Klöck présentera le livre qu’elle vient de co-éditer chez Routledge sur les coalitions dans les négociations climatiques internationales.

La présentation sera discutée par Anaëlle Vergonjeanne, doctorante au CERI. 

Coalitions are a defining feature of any multilateral negotiations, such as those on climate change. Rather than participate individually, states team up with like-minded countries in coalitions or negotiation groups. In the climate case, there are now over 20 such coalitions.
Despite their central role, coalitions have received surprisingly little academic attention; we still know little about when and why coalitions form, who joins which coalitions, or how coalitions change negotiation dynamics and process. The edited volume Coalitions in the Climate Change Negociations (Routledge, 2020) addresses this gap. It takes stock of the evolving landscape of climate negotiations, and zooms in on some of the new coalitions that have emerged over the past round of negotiations. 

Carola Klöck is Assistant Professor of political science at CERI. Carola’s research draws on political science, human geography and development studies and examines climate change negotiations as well as local adaptation to climate change, both with a specific focus on small island states. Carola holds a PhD from ETH Zurich (Switzerland) and a German habilitation (equivalent to HDR in France) from the University of Göttingen (Germany).

Anaëlle Vergonjeanne is currently enrolled as a PhD student at the CERI, where she works on children in international organizations, under the direction of Frédéric Ramel. Currently, her doctoral research focuses on the reception in multilateral organizations of children’s mobilizations for climate, through the study of the petition to the Children’s Rights Committee (CRC) that Greta Thunberg and 15 other children filed in 2019 against States that did not respect their engagement to fighting climate change. She is also interested in other complaints that were filed to the CRC by migrant children through the same procedure of participation.

Chair : Richard Balme (Sciences Po, Centre for European studies and comparative politics & AIRE)
