EU-UN relations in the policy field ‚environment’

Module by Tom Delreux, ISPOLE
 
This webinar on EU-UN relations in the field environmental policy field first presents the main UN venues where environmental issues are discussed. We will see that the main institutional fora for UN-wide environmental negotiations are currently multilateral environmental agreements (MEAs) and their follow-up meetings. We then learn about the EU’s preference for UN-wide MEAs as an instrument of global environmental governance. The webinar continues by exploring the EU’s internal organisation when the EU participates in international environmental negotiations. It concludes by a brief overview of the successes and failures of the EU in the UN in the environmental policy field.
 
Keywords: climate policy; environmental policy; European Union; global environmental governance; multilateral environmental agreements
