Drawing on first hand interview data with experts and government officials, Olivia Gippner develops a new analytical framework to explore the vested interests and policy debates surrounding Chinese climate policy-making.

Scrutinising the “turf wars” that have erupted between bureaucratic institutions competing for resources, promotions and access, this innovative book unpacks the histories and trajectories of Chinese climate policies, placing them in the context of the international politics of climate change. Gippner’s new framework is deployed in detailed case studies based on the 2°C target, emissions trading and carbon capture and storage to illustrate the timing and scale of climate policy adoption.

This book will appeal to researchers exploring the creation and establishment of Chinese policy and the influence from other countries, in particular the EU’s climate policy promotion. Environmental politics and climate policy researchers looking to expand their research field will also benefit from this book’s unique framework of analysis. Policymakers and the growing think tank community in this field will value details from first-hand interviews with Chinese government officials and climate change negotiators.
Critical Acclaim
‘As far as I am concerned, the contributions of the study are threefold. First, from a theoretical point of view, the study contributes to the literature on bureaucratic politics and EU external governance. Second, it features a research approach that combines process tracing with case study research, thereby providing insights regarding the combination of research methods. Finally, it offers empirical insights for the growing research agenda that deals with Chinese climate policymaking, internal politics and the role of external international actors. This book is a great accomplishment and is bound to inspire further fascinating debates and research on Chinese climate change policy.’
