Project description

As a joint project of the University of Halle and the FFU two surveys were prepared, conducted and analysed in Germany. Firstly, associations and interest groups in two regions of Germany (Berlin and the district of Halle) were queried regarding their political strategies. Similar surveys has been conducted in Japan, the USA and Korea aiming at identifying national differences. Secondly, in an independent survey, the national policy network has been identified and queried regarding their network relations, that framed the German position in questions of global climate change policy. Also this survey has been conducted in Japan, USA and Korea as well.
