Ämne: Kurser på engelska

Why are there such great difficulties in negotiating comprehensive international agreements which would reduce greenhouse gas emissions sufficiently? On the issue of climate change, what has happened globally? How have countries’ positions changed over time, and why? During this course we will follow the developments of climate change negotiations in recent times. Students of this course will learn the history of the UNFCCC’s work, in an attempt to understand the complexities of negotiation and implementation. Aspects of climate justice and global equity will be studied. The interaction between political process and scientific research will also be investigated.
