Chapter 3: China, the European Union and global environmental governance: the case of climate change
This chapter explores the evolving role(s) of China and the European Union (EU) in global climate and environmental governance. This is done through brief case-studies of, first, China and then the European Union. A second section presents an analysis of EU–China relations in global climate governance since the early days of the climate regime (1992–2012), predominantly from the perspective of the European Union. The chapter refers to global environmental governance more generally but consistently focuses on global climate governance, which deals with an issue that is currently often perceived as being the most pressing environmental problem. Although developments at regional, national and local levels are referred to, attention is particularly focused on the evolution of global climate negotiations under the United Nations (UN) umbrella.
