New Affiliated Project – Behind the Scenes: Mapping the Role of Secretariats

We welcome the Behind the Scenes: Mapping the Role of Treaty Secretariats in International Environmental Policy-Making project as an Earth System Governance Affiliated Project. 

This project of the DFG-Research Unit “International Public Administration” explores how and to what extent international public administrations (IPAs) interact with political and non-political actors of various levels during and in-between major international conferences. The project seeks to identify to what extent and under which conditions convention secretariats can act as partially autonomous actors.
