Climate Policy Changes in Germany and Japan

Climate Policy Changes in Germany and Japan compares two decades of climate policy development in Germany and Japan. It examines whether there is any difference between the types and levels of policy change in the two countries, and, if so, what factors account for the difference. Using a comparison of climate policy changes in Germany and Japan from 1987 to 2005 as a basis, it also discusses the effectiveness and the limits of existing theories of policy change and policy process, most notably the Advocacy Coalition Framework (ACF), Punctuated Equilibrium Approach and Multiple Stream Approach, and explores the theoretical question as to how long-term, paradigmatic policy change takes place....

The EU has been portrayed as a leader in international climate change negotiations. Its role in the development of the climate change regime, as well as the adoption of novel policy instruments such as the EU Emissions Trading Scheme in 2005, are frequently put forward as indicative of a determination to push the international climate agenda forward. However, there are numerous instances where the EU has failed to achieve its climate change objectives (e.g. the 2009 Copenhagen Conference of the Parties). It is therefore important to examine the reasons behind these failures. This book explores in detail the involvement of the EU in international climate talks from the late 1980s to the prese...

Governing Low-carbon Development and the Economy

Based on results of the first phase of the Kyoto Protocol--which requires participating industrial countries to limit their carbon emissions--this book recommends creating a global regulatory regime that would set emission targets for all nations. The authors argue that once these targets and the policies for meeting them are established, countries will be spurred to develop lower-carbon-producing economies. Targets and policies and their implementation would vary from country to country, leading to different types of economies. The book focuses on the role that local governments would play, how domestic policies would be created and integrated with broader regional or national ones, what sh...
