International Economic Institutions and Domestic Actors in the Climate Regime Complex

- the Cases of Climate Financing and Fossil Fuel Subsidies
Funded by the Swedish Research Council [Vetenskapsrådet], the Bank of Sweden Tercentenary Foundation [Riksbankens Jubileumsfond] the Swedish Research Council Formas [Forskningsrådet Formas].

How do institutions created to handle economic issues deal with climate change?

The project analyses the role of international economic institutions such as the Group of 20 (G20) and the Organisation for Cooperation and Development in Europe (OECD) and domestic economic institutions (finance ministries) in international climate politics.

The empirical focus is on the cases of climate financing and fossil fuel subsidy phase-out due to their high degree of involvement of international economic institutions and high degree of progress in the international negotiations.

In concrete terms, the analysis will be based on analysing decision-making processes in eight countries. The eight states are the US, Germany, China, Brazil, the UK, India, Denmark and Sweden.
