Workshop: The Territorial Dimensions of Climate Change Policy

May 24, 2019 — May 26, 2019
Time: 10:00 AM — 5:00 PM

Location:Technical University, Munich, Germany

The Jean Monnet Network in EU-Canada Relations is pleased to host a one-day policy workshop, The Territorial Dimensions of Climate Change Policy, which will be held at the Technical University in Munich, Germany. This research workshop will seek to promote a deeper understanding of some of the key territorial and social aspects of climate change policy in Canada and in the EU and its member states. The workshop will focus on three aspects: how climate frameworks emerge in complex governance systems; the diversity of economic conditions among territories and their consequences for policy-making in specific sectors of energy and climate policy; and the social effects of energy and climate policy as these have been discussed in Europe, on the one hand under the label of energy poverty and on the other as an opportunity for renewal of low-income regions.

Beyond the redistributive consequences of climate and energy policies between groups of society, it is important to consider how economic structures have changed and the impacts on interest organization and interest intermediation. The workshop will bring together key experts and young researchers from Canada and Europe with the goal of discussing innovative research approaches and research findings.

The workshop will include three panels: supranational and federal climate policy strategies; territorial effects of climate policy and intergovernmental negotiations; and social effects of climate policy and interest intermediation. A draft agenda will be forthcoming in early March 2019. Registration will be required to attend the workshop.

Please note: This event is being hosted at the Jean Monnet Network partner, Technical University-Munich, in Germany.

This workshop is supported by the Jean Monnet Network on EU-Canada Relations, funded by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union, by Carleton University and by partner universities.
