We welcome the Jean-Monnet network ‘Governing the EU’s Climate and Energy Transition in Turbulent Times’ (GOVTRAN) as a new Earth System Governance Affiliated Project.

GOVTRAN brings together senior and early career scholars working in a broad range of fields, including climate and energy policy, European integration, and governance studies. The GOVTRAN Management Board includes Earth System Governance Lead Faculty members Sebastian Oberthür (IES-VUB), and Andrew Jordan (University of East Anglia) as well as Earth System Governance Research Fellow Claire Dupont (Ghent University)

Network activities focus on two key aspects of recent EU climate and energy policy: the EU climate and energy policy framework for 2030, and the impact of the European Union’s climate and energy policy/governance on, and contribution to, the longer-term future of Europe, European integration, and the EU.

GOVTRAN is a collaboration of four consortium partners with firmly established track records in relevant fields: The institute for European Studies at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel, University of East Anglia, University of Eastern Finland, and Ghent University.
