Abstract english

The diversity of the contributions to this volume illustrates the complexity of the challenge. Climate change is a governance problem that needs to be analysed, and addressed, at multiple levels, in multiple sectors, and with a view to multiple actors. In searching for policy options that go beyond current negotiations, the contributions thus addressed issues as diverse as international carbon markets, overlaps between the climate convention and world trade law, the role of non-state actors in technological change, climate refugees, or the vulnerability of the poorest of the poor. The chapters approached these issues from a variety of methodological approaches, showing that the governance challenge of global climate change can be framed very differently.
