Chapter 3: Political economy
This chapter draws on insights from a range of (global) political economy approaches that are helpful in understanding key dimensions of the nature of contemporary climate governance, in particular: the form it takes and how this has changed over time; its relative ineffectiveness and questions about who and what climate governance is for. It shows how different traditions within historical materialism and critical political economy shed light on key features of climate governance such as the marketization of governance, the role of the state and the links between production, power and governance that construct, enable and constrain the nature of responses to climate change.
