Europäische Klimapolitik – Erfolgsgeschichte oder Mogelpackung?
How significant is the impact of current climate protection policy related activities and initiatives in Europe? Is Europe successfully playing a leadership role in global climate protection policy development and implementation? Can European climate policy be described as a success story? In an article, Anna Leipprand and Camilla Bausch present an analysis of recent developments in international and European climate policy.
The article analyses current European climate policy at three different levels: efforts undertaken by European actors at the international level (G8 summit), the domestic climate protection targets agreed at European level (Council Conclusions), and the challenges their implementation is faced with.
The article is part of a dossier on „global warming – climate, energy and politics“ in the September 2007 Issue of the Neue Gesellschaft/Frankfurter Hefte Journal, which also includes articles by Egon Bahr and Sigmar Gabriel, Michael Müller, Hermann Scheer and Jana Zitzler.
