EPA Speaker Series 2013: Bringing the Intragovernmental Into Regime Interaction Analysis: The G20 and Climate Change by Jakub Skovgaard

October 17, 2013 in News by Marija Isailovic

As part of the monthly EPA Speaker Series organized at the Institute of Environmental Studies (IVM), VU University Amsterdam, our collaborating scholar Jakub Skovgaard will give a presentation of his research on the role of intergovernmental processes in regime fragmentation and more specifically on the role of the G20 in the climate change regime complex.

Abstract:
Climate change is increasingly addressed by actors and regimes which do not usually deal with environmental issues. One example is the Group of 20 (G20), which has addressed climate change issues since 2009. In order to understand the interaction between the G20 and other regimes on climate change, it is necessary to analyze the dynamics which take place on the intra-governmental level between the finance ministries – the domestic constituency of the G20 – and the environment ministries – the domestic constituency of the environmental regimes.
