Negotiating Climate Change

A Forensic Analysis

Aynsley Kellow

This book examines how an error in global meta-policy set climate change negotiations on an unproductive course. The decision to base negotiations on the Montreal Protocol and overlook the importance of interests, it argues, institutionalised an approach doomed to fail. By analysing interests, science and norms in the process, and the neglect of ‘interactive minilateralism’, learning was delayed until the more promising Paris Agreement was finally concluded, only to encounter a Trump Presidency, which (ironically) might offer further learning opportunities.

Chapter 5: Minilateralism and forum shopping: negotiations and multiple arenas

A Forensic Analysis

Aynsley Kellow

Extract

While supporters of Kyoto attacked the formation of different arenas for political action such as the Asia-Pacific Partnership on Clean Development and Climate, this chapter argues that the use of multiple arenas was functional for the development of the Paris Agreement, and details the various bilateral, minilateral and plurilateral arenas that helped build agreement in a process described as ‘interactive minilateralism’.
