The Earth System Governance Affiliated Project INOGOV – Innovations in Climate Governance, is calling for abstracts for an international workshop and for applications to its summer school (only EU based researchers).
INOGOV is an international network of excellence dedicated to understanding policy and governance innovation for climate change. It draws together scholars and practitioners who focus on particular aspects of climate change policy and governance innovation, namely their: ‘sources’; ‘diffusion’; and ‘effects’. Funded by COST, INOGOV uses a range of networking instruments, including funding for intensive research workshops, visiting fellowships and summer schools, to lever novel findings from existing research investments.
Call for abstracts for a fully funded workshop
22-24 March 2017, Global Policy Institute, Durham University, UK
The workshop aims to:
Conceptualize and map the different pathways through which domestic, intergovernmental and transnational governance initiatives can potentially interact with and raise or lower the level of ambition of actions taken in other governance domains.
Develop our understanding of these linkages by analyzing specific instances in which domestic, intergovernmental and/or transnational initiatives have interacted with and reinforced one another, or not. Specifically, the aim here is to develop positive explanations of when and why actions in one sphere can influence outcomes in another.
Draw insights from the conceptual and empirical work undertaken in order to develop lessons for policymakers attempting to leverage actions in particular spheres.
Papers may be conceptual, empirical, or normative in nature, and can apply a range of methods. Proposal deadline: 24 November 2016.
