Institutional Interaction in Global Environmental by Sebastian Oberthür, Thomas Gehring

By Sebastian Oberthür, Thomas Gehring

This systematic research of the interplay between foreign and ecu associations presents either a theoretical framework for research and the 1st vast review of this mostly uncharted box of analysis. by means of supplying exact case experiences and a scientific research of effects, the e-book examines the consequences of institutional interplay on environmental governance and explores the ways that overseas and ecu Union regulations can both toughen or undercut one another.After a conceptual review within which Oberthür and Gehring establish 3 causal mechanisms through which institutional interplay can have an effect on environmental governance, ten case stories observe this theoretical strategy. Six situations use a world establishment as their start line and 4 start with a eu Union criminal tool. The overseas regimes tested contain the commonly recognized conference on overseas exchange in Endangered Species of untamed wildlife (CITES), conference on organic variety (CBD), and international alternate association and United countries Framework conference on weather swap (UNFCCC). the european tools analyzed contain lesser-known directives at the safeguard of habitats, the planned liberate of genetically changed organisms into the surroundings, and air caliber. The experiences convey that even if clash and interference between diversified regimes and associations do occur, synergistic interactions are universal. The findings at the value of, and mechanisms in the back of, those results provide worthy insights for either students and policymakers.Contributors:Beatrice Chaytor, Clare Coffey, Andrew Farmer, Thomas Gehring, John Lanchbery, Sebastian Oberthür, Alice Palmer, G.

Example text

Analytic disaggregation of the complex coevolution process into a suitable number of cases of interaction with a single direction of influence enables us to examine when, how, and why influence actually runs back and forth (rather than repeatedly in the same direction). The principal strategy is to analytically divide a coevolution process into different phases over time (Archer 1985; Carlsnaes 1992). In doing so, we assume for the purposes of our analysis that there was a point in time when neither of the institutions in question was influenced by the other.

Whereas more than a third of the unintentionally triggered cases of interaction in our sample resulted in disruption, intentionally triggered cases of disruption appear to be particularly rare. It may not be surprising that disruptive interaction is virtually absent from the environmental policy field; we may expect that it plays a more prominent role in more competitive policy fields such as security affairs. It is more noteworthy that disruptive interaction is occasionally employed intentionally even in environmental governance to bring about change within other institutions, in particular those belonging to other policy fields.
