This thematic engages with the rapidly changing structure of global environmental governance, with a view to identifying practical ways to galvanise transformative action for sustainability.
Tackling environmental sustainability is perhaps the most pressing global public policy challenge. This research cluster engages with the cutting-edge scholarship that is redefining understandings of global environmental governance, illustrating the shifting architecture of structures, actors and processes, and the increasing salience of dyadic relations within meta-regime complexes. Recent GGI events and activities have explored, for instance, the role of economic growth in the sustainability transition; youth engagement in global climate negotiations; the prospects for a shared agenda on climate change, biodiversity loss and health; pathways for a green post-Covid recovery; and the future of climate governance under the Paris Agreement.
