More Information
The Handbook on European Union Climate Change Policy and Politics provides a wide-ranging and in-depth assessment of current and emerging challenges facing the EU in committing to and delivering increasingly ambitious climate policy objectives. It traces the development of climate and energy policies since the early 1990s, and examines their continued evolution in the context of the 2019 European Green Deal.

With contributions from leading international scholars, it describes the key dynamics driving policy developments, and the role of key actors in climate and energy-related policy processes. Covering topics that have previously been relatively neglected, or have recently gained greater significance, such as finance and investment, ‘hard to abate’ sectors and negative emissions, this timely Handbook offers an up-to-date and unrivalled exploration of the complexities of climate policy making.

It will be of primary interest to academics researching EU politics, and environmental politics, policy, regulation and governance more widely. It will also be pertinent to students and researchers who require more specialised knowledge of EU climate policy and politics.
Critical Acclaim
‘A comprehensive explanation of the development, strengths and weaknesses of the EU’s policies related to climate change. A highly commendable book covering extensive research for those interested in the climate and energy transition, political science around the EU, and the EU’s contribution to the world’s collective well-being. The deep dives into different institutions and policy areas are full of insights. These highly qualified authors pass judgement on the last 30 years of the EU’s climate policymaking and the intricacies behind them. Well worth a read.’
– Peter Vis, European University Institute, Italy

‘From the origins of EU climate change leadership, through the main institutions, political dynamics and policy instruments and goals, this impressive collection helps us to better understand the accomplishments, barriers and challenges for EU climate leadership in our increasingly uncertain and dangerous era.’
– Stacy D. VanDeveer, University of Massachusetts Boston, US

‘The volume is an authoritative resource for researchers and students as well as practitioners engaged in climate governance. The editors have excelled in producing a comprehensive review of and refreshed insight into the most important research themes, delivered by an exciting mix of established and bright young scholars.’
