Chapter 9: Chinese climate policy and the European Union during the Hu-Wen leadership (2003-2013)

Olivia Gippner


The study finds that the European Union has taken the role of an agenda-setter and reference point for framing climate change policy in China during the fourth leadership era (2002_2012) and the first years of Xi Jinping’s presidency. The EU’s influence on actual policy-making, however, has been mediated by bureaucratic politics within Chinese decision-making structures. The study thus adds a new perspective on how policies, in particular in the case of climate change, travel and diffuse between jurisdictions all across the globe.
