We are pleased to announce that the KFG Working Papers No. 45 and 46 have been published.
In both papers, the authors examine the diffusion of EU policy, highlighting the importance of domestic factors of extra-EU countries for the diffusion processes.
Working Paper No. 45: Emissions Trading - A Transatlantic Journey for an Idea?
In her paper, Katja Biedenkopf examines the ways in which the EU greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions trading system (ETS) affected the design of similar programs in North America and under which conditions EU pioneering policy can play a role in extra-EU jurisdictions' policy-making.
The author Diarmuid Torney investigates the attempted diffusion of climate change norms, policies, and institutions by the EU to China and India. He argues that the development of Chinese and Indian climate change policy should be understood as primarily domestic developments and that domestic factors help to explain the variation in the Chinese and Indian responses to EU attempts at diffusion.
