Beyond reach? EU-China climate relations after Paris
September 8, 2016 - 13:30-15:00
In this seminar, Dr. Olivia Gippner (LSE) will trace the evolution of the EU-China climate relationship since its creation in 2005.
Over the past decade, the EU has been following a “policy of unconditional engagement” vis-à-vis the PRC, pursuing its promotion of effective multilateralism. In the field of climate change China has been an increasingly important member of the UNFCCC process and a key target of European engagement policies. Regardless of geographical distance, which restricts European ability to apply coercive measures or conditionality, Europe has employed a variety of instruments in its foreign environmental policy. But how do Chinese decision-makers perceive these efforts?
