Workshop on the legitimacy of climate governance

Fariborz Zelli was co-organiser of a two-day workshop on ‘Enhancing Legitimacy in Polycentric Climate Governance’ at the European University Institute in Florence (May 19-20).

The workshop brought together some of the leading scholars on international institutions, legitimacy and climate governance, including keynote speakers Robert Keohane, Liliana Andonova, Karin Bäckstrand and Peter Haas.

25 participants discussed how the increasing complexity of climate governance - with its multitude of overlapping institutions - affects different dimensions of legitimacy. Key discussion items were whether legitimacy may still be desirable or achievable in a complex institutional architecture, whether there is a need for re-thinking scholarly criteria to measure legitimacy in such a context, and how polycentricity may alter the roles of core institutions and secretariats.

The workshop was sponsored by the EU-COST action on ‘Innovations in Climate Governance’ and the Robert Schuman Centre for Advanced Studies.
